Creative influences Throughout my life I have been influenced by people both in the past and present; however my late father never knew how his creative style of working and telling of stories had opened my mind to the ancient Irish Celts & Gaelic Scots. My brother has also played an important part by recognizing that in spite of my previous health problems I had the abilities & simply needed encouragement to develop designs that reflected today’s every changing taste in interior design. Two friends whose influence has helped me over many long years to nurture and develop my own style is the current bespoke artist Robert Ryan and his late departed brother (bespoke artist) Martin Ryan. The pictures that I create in copper and pewter today have choice of flowers similar to that used by the late Margaret (McDonald) Mackintosh wife of C.R. Mackintosh. (My favourite flower is the Scottish Thistle the heart of Scotland)

I have been a professional artist for many years, studying in Hampshire and in Glasgow, originally working as a textile designer, before demand grew and I made the decision to concentrate my work solely on painting. Exhibiting extensively across the UK, including several sold-out exhibitions, I have been lucky enough to have many collectors including celebrities, politicians, and companies, with customers in the USA, Canada, Ireland, across Europe, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Design and art work has been commissioned and purchased by – among others – The National Trust for Scotland, Glasgow Galleries and Museums, Scottish Tourist Board, the Edinburgh Festival Company, for castles, hotels, company offices, and by many private collectors around the world. Selected for the Scottish Artists Gallery at the John Lewis store in Glasgow. Gallery exhibitions include Glasgow, Helensburgh, Ayrshire, Stirling, Perthshire, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Bristol. My work has been featured in a number of magazines and newspapers, and has been described as ‘one of the modern Scottish Colourists’.
