I am an artist and printmaker living and working in Galloway. I started my career as a designer, training at the Scottish College of Textiles in Galashiels. My work is based on drawing - realised in pen and ink wash, etchings and solar-plate etchings. It reveals hidden micro-landscapes, glimpses of corners of gardens, allotments, and forgotten greenhouses. Sketches and larger colour drawings are often made on location and then developed in the studio, emboldening elements and using other techniques and processes to explore their potential.
