“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.”

“I like to get really loose with my work, and tighten it up with lines. I go back and forth between being reckless and controlled. I apply my washes intuitively and work methodically when I’m drawing.”
I have fallen a little behind with the posts the last couple of months. In 2014, my wife and I moved from NYC to California and bought a bungalow! It has been an awesome whirlwind and a huge change of pace. Now my weekends are filled with fighting the constant decay of a home built in 1910…
I am looking forward to getting more involved in the growing Sacramento art scene (aka 2nd Saturdays). I also have real studio space now! We have really come to love midtown and feel we are at the start of something great!
