New Work 2022

The work I have been making in the last year or so has been directly inspired by my immediate environment – my own house and the beach just outside where I live, and Leith, where I work, teaching in a small art school. The work initially seems quite disparate – one being mainly still life explorations, the other looking at quite a brutalist urban environment, but in both bodies of work, I am exploring colour, pattern and surface. I absolutely love colour and it is central to everything I make, whether it is a painting of a patterned jug, or a linocut print of a tower block.
