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 rarely use Facebook now. Please use the link above.

is a fine-art etcher based in Edinburgh,




I am currently showing some work at Gallery Q's Summer Show in Dundee. This will run till the 3rd September.


Later I will be exhibiting at the Scottish Arts Club in Edinburgh over the month of October with fellow artists: Kelly Stewart, John Heywood and Laura Gressani in a show featuring images of Edinburgh.


In the two weeks at the end of October and the beginning of November a group of us are taking over the Dockside Gallery in Berwick Upon Tweed. Here we hope to show a range of work both old and new - especially some from what will have been a recent trip to Amble, in September.


Alternatively, this is the most comprehensive site and has the biggest range of my work available.
