studied at the Glasgow School of art and is now a full time artist. For many
years she worked from a studio in the West End of Glasgow, though due to the
demand for her work increasing she now works from a studio in Bothwell with
paints of range of subjects in her iconic semi-abstract impasto style. She says
that her paintings, ‘are generally not representative
of specific locations and tend to be a mixture of elements that I feel
work well together. I am more interested in how to use bold colour, composition
and heavy texture to create dramatic images. I try to capture a
sense of depth and atmosphere through the use very thick paint, vibrant,
contrasting colours, light and shade. I rarely use brushes, preferring the use
of palette knives to apply thickened paint in stages, building up the structure
and texture over a period of time’.
work has been exhibited widely both locally and nationally.
