How and when did you started creating….?
Really since I came to Scotland to the Isle of Mull and was inspired by the landscape - mountains and lakes in one. What a privilege to be able to live here. Practically just picked up a brush and had a go and you should try too.
How would you describe your creations?
I always seem to be drawn to the light and the contrast between light and shadow, with which we are blessed by in Scotland. My mixed media at work is inspired by the shapes and textures found in nature.
