I am a self taught Northern Irish artist currently living and working through the week in Newcastle Upon Tyne and spending my weekends in Scotland with regular return visits to Northern Ireland.
With these three places to take inspiration from I'm never at a loss for something to grab my attention and inspire me to draw, with my main inspiration coming from abandoned and forgotten places in our urban and rural landscape.
Over the past four years I have exhibited with Royal Society of Marine Artists, Pastel Society, Great North Art Show, Art&York, Society of Scottish Artists, Jacksons Emerging Artist Prize, Society of Graphic Fine Art and I was also a contestant in Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2018.
My work is now available online in the following galleries:
Velvet Easel Gallery, Portobello
Smithy Gallery, Blanefield
Torrance Gallery, Edinburgh
Solo Gallery, Innerleithen
