Since graduating from Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, I have worked in Art Education. This has included schools and Artist in Residence posts, including Paintings in Hospitals, London and a Scottish Arts Council funded post in the Crichton Royal Hospital, Dumfries (now part of the University of South West Scotland campus), where I was given the opportunity to developing both therapeutic art programmes in addition to my own work. Both these organisations have my work in their permanent collections.
Why Dogs and other Pets?
As a pet owner and animal lover I enjoying capturing the character of painting and drawing portraits of dogs and other animals in a more expressive way. Photos are fine but as a fine artist I believe in using my medium to capture the essence of your pet.
