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.

Am back in the studio of Edinburgh Printmakers. Yey!


I'm now working on a new body of work, on the theme of NATURE in the City - the CITY in Nature.

Meanwhile, I also have two group Exhibitions to work towards, at the lovely Gallery Q, Dundee. More information here on my Exhibitions page.   

Finally, here is a brand new picture. Made last autumn in the space between lockdowns, my 'Iona, North-East'. Find it under 'Landscapes' in my portfolio.
