The Jetty Gallery
"From an early age art was an important means of expression for me, whether through drawing, writing or sculpting art has remained a strong passion of mine. It's no surprise that having chosen an artistic route in life, my subject matter has leant towards landscape and wildlife.
Volunteering in a wildlife rescue centre has no doubt added to my knowledge, understanding and love of wildlife.
I am lucky enough to regularly get out in the 'field', (be it islands, mountains or machair ) to capture my subject matter with camera and pencil. However, I do like to retreat back to a comfortable seat and easel to paint.
My aim is to capture a feeling of the moment.
I admire many types of art. With regards to my own work the impressionist movement, juxtaposed with traditional Japanese woodblock print has inspired my style the most."
