My work is figurative, I work with a variety of mediums, subject matter and art forms with a preference for oils. Drawing is at the core of everything I do. Paintings can be both figurative and landscape snapshots of life. At present drawing and painting the view of Irvine Harbour from my studio window has provided inspiration and a backdrop for recent oil paintings.
