My art comes from a passion for drawing and painting combined with a love of computers and tablets. New painting apps have enabled me to explore this deeper and deeper. Some artists who use the digital platform choose to use a stylus to imitate the paintbrush or palette knife. I began by finger painting and have continued the journey in this way as it gives me a more spontaneous result, which is a great way to develop new themes and ideas. Growing up in Africa for 20 years gave me a lot of wonderful visual material to call on in my work and I'm always looking for new directions to take my art. I love coastal themes and was born in a far northern Scottish fishing village so feel that my interest comes from there. I'm hoping to tell my story through my art and share that with everyone as I continue the journey.
