The early influences of my Scottish Highland roots have led to a continuing love for complex patterns and subtle colour combinations inspired by Highland traditions and the stunning vistas. I'm always in awe of the grandeur of the mountains and captivated by the forever changing light as it plays across the landscape.
Having married a Welshman, I now live in beautiful, rural North Wales, close to Snowdonia and the Clwydian Hills. 'Hiraeth', a strong sense of belonging to the land is important in these rural communities, along with protecting our native wildlife, such as wild Carneddau Ponies and Red Squirrels.
As an artist, Snowdonia and North Wales continue to fuel my passion for beautiful landscapes and moody skies. My love of the wild untamed nature of these rugged mountains, lochs and llynnau, especially in winter, appeals to the artist in me and I try and capture their essence in my original artworks.
I hope you love my paintings as much as I enjoy the whole artistic process.
