Although my background is Civil
Engineering for as long as I can remember I have sketched and painted.
The first painting I completed was 28 years ago; however it is during
the last 9 years that I have exhibited at various locations throughout
I have always had a keen interest
in Natural History, more significantly I have been drawn to the
sandbanks, the ebb and flow of the tide and the wild duck and geese that
migrate to the shores of the Solway Firth and other parts of the British
I have spent most of my life in
Glencaple a small village on the east bank of the River Nith. For me
this is the perfect place to live as this location coupled with the
changing light of the sunrise and sunsets and the comings and goings of
the bird life and other wildlife, which inhabit the surrounding area,
provide endless images to paint and sketch.
