PROFILE

BORN IN 1960 IN THE HERTFORDSHIRE VIILAGE OF WELWYN, MOVED TO HAWICK, IN THE SCOTTISH BORDERS, 1969 AND LIVED THERE EVER SINCE, AND HAVE COME TO LOVE SCOTLAND, ESPECIALLY THE HIGHLANDS AND ISLANDS.

A LOVE OF PAINTINGS AND PICTURES PROBIBLY GOES BACK TO EARLY SCHOOL DAYS, WHERE OUR SCHOOL ENCOURAGED PLAY AS A WAY TO LEARN, GREAT FUN, BUT WE PLAYED MORE THAN WE LEARNT. THAT ALL CHANGED IN HAWICK, WHERE FORTUNATELY MATHS AND ENGLISH WERE MORE IMPORTANT. UNTIL THIRD YEAR IN HIGH SCHOOL, WHEN I WAS ABLE TO CHOOSE O LEVEL ART, WITH 8 OUT OF 40 PERIODS A WEEK, AND A GREAT TEACHER.

I PAINT FOR PLEASURE AND HAVE FOUND THAT, QUITE A NUMBER OF PEOPLE, FIND PLEASURE IN MY PAINTINGS, AND
WANT TO BUY THEM, WHICH IS A LOVELY FEELING, ALTHOUGH I HAVE BEEN LOATHED TO PART WITH MANY OF THEM.

FROM SEPTEMBER 2008 I HAVE BEEN WORKING FROM A STUDIO IN WASPS STUDIOS IN SELKIRK.
