Hello, welcome to my site. I am delighted you have found me and I hope you enjoy looking at my work.

I graduated from Art College in 1981 so have been a printmaker for roughly 40 years now, and a professional artist for almost 30 (1991). It's mostly etchings I do and what you will find here. 

Edinburgh, Scotland has been my home for most of my life and it’s here where, as a member of Edinburgh Printmakers, I make my work.


Mostly these are pictures of whatever strikes me, wherever I am: cityscapes of Edinburgh, landscapes, plant studies, still lives and collections of objects I have found. It’s light and shadow that I notice, tone and texture and patterns. I enjoy doing sets of images showing variations on a theme. Recently I have been making forays into abstraction, but, so far, this is about having fun! I don’t know where, if anywhere these’ll lead me.

I have a fairly active instagram account so do go there to see what I am doing at any given time. I also have a facebook page. Please use the links above.

HURRAH! We now have a date for when the studio will re-open - the 27 April, to experienced members only at first. Am SO looking forward to being able to get on with stuff.


Two NEW IMAGES have been uploaded in my 'Letterbox' portfolio.
