My paintings and drawings are inspired by the East Neuk of Fife and full of warm, bright colours. The old harbours and buildings provide interesting subjects. I work in a variety of media: oils, acrylics, inks and mixed media, sometimes using a scraffiti technique for added effect, and pencil drawing.
