“Being a native Californian, the ocean and its wildlife have a huge influence on my creativity.”
“Living and working in Vancouver but originally hailing from Scotland, I studied digital imaging at the Glasgow College of Building and Printing.
After completing my studies I ventured to both Iceland and Ireland where I expanded my original fashion and portraiture focused work to include, abstract still life, landscape and travel photography.”

“When I paint, time and space are disappearing. The only existing reality is the action and interaction between me, the materials, paints, colors, and shapes.”
“With many years designing and maintaining gardens, I have narrowed my primary focus to nature as a subject to reference. I work to convey the beauty and complexities of nature using texture, pattern, and narrative elements throughout my work, which range from elaborate watercolor and gouache compositions on paper to vast and more layered paintings on canvas. Through my travels I continue to seek out inspiration from the natural world while honing in on the unique details that define each place.”
“Reflection, snippets of light and color that one might miss walking through today’s modern and evolving Coney Island – this is what he tries to capture through his paintings. Evoking memories for people with a Coney Island past, and showing the importance of it’s existence to those in the middle of creating their own memories.”
” I tear up books, slice into my old woodblock prints, and cut my drawings out of the paper they’re drawn on. The destruction is disquieting but also liberating- there are wonderful possibilities to be found in these colorful pieces of paper.
Usually each piece of art resolves itself in a manner that I didn’t foresee and didn’t even think was possible.”
