I work in many ways mixing different techniques and mediums, painting, drawing, illustration, print making, textile, animation. I’m very fortunate to have a beautiful view from my studio window of Irvine harbour and the Dalry hills which often find their way into my work either as backdrops or in the spotlight. Even on the dullest of days, the view can always inspire.
