I was born and brought up in Ardrishaig, Mid-Argyll, where I started painting while still at school.I moved to Glasgow in the early eighties to attend university and graduated with a BSc Civil Engineer from Glasgow University. After working for several years in engineering, I decided to return to more creative pursuits and took up painting again. I now live and work in Ayrshire with my husband, two young children and various livestock!I have work in private collections as far afield as Canada,Jersey and France and I exhibit in the Mid-Argyll Art Society annual exhibition.Growing up in Mid-Argyll made it very difficult not to paint! The drama and light are ever changing and I love the wonderful skies. I work in oils and pastels and return to the West coast regularly to recharge my soul. My paintings are honest and as I see them. I hope you enjoy them.
