An alternate make-believe world, filled with colourful animals and people.
I paint mostly from imagination but I also use some photo references to create my alternate reality.
I was born and educated in Scotland, studying primate behaviour. I emigrated to New Zealand, where I became a scientific liaison officer and children's author, writing and illustrating stories for children's magazines, such as School Journal (NZ) and Cricket (USA).
In 1990, I returned to the UK to study the anthropology of art. This helped my cross-over from science to arts. I worked for a time in art and design research, designing toys for babies.
From 2012, I became a full time artist and concentrated on developing my personal portfolio.
My paintings have been exhibited in one-person shows in Scotland at Gallery 3, in New Zealand at Manurewa City library, and in group exhibitions in Scotland and England.
