BIO

Artist Profile

Welcome to my site! I'm a self-taught painter and English teacher from the Scottish Borders.  Creative since childhood, I always counted art as one of my favourite school subjects and considered pursuing it further but instead chose a different path. It was becoming a mum that brought me back to doing what I love. Through partaking in creative activities with my kids, I rediscovered my love for painting and I've never stopped since. 
Since 2017, I've pursued art as a hobby, passion and in a professional capacity, undertaking regular commissions and selling original paintings, prints and merchandise at the same time as continuing to teach English part-time. 
Landscapes and portraits are my main subjects.  My landscapes are vibrant and expressive and are mostly inspired by the impact of the changing seasons on the Borders landscape. My watercolour illustrations make popular gifts due to their unique and personal nature. 
I hope you enjoy the variety of work you'll find on this site. Here, you can browse, shop, enquire about commissions or contact me about any other enquiry.
