Welcome to my site

Travel now seems a remote dream, but my sketchbooks are still a  reminder of different journeys, and a useful source of inspiration for paintings. In February this year I revisited Marrakech, and have made several paintings with a Moroccan theme.

I was also inspired by the serenity and glowing colours of an exhibition of Indian watercolours at the Wallace Collection in London.

Matisse has always been my great love, but I have always felt a strong connection with the Scottish Colourists: it must be my student days in Edinburgh!
