I was born and raised in the North East of Scotland, leaving after graduating in Architectural Glass at Edinburgh College of Art to America. And although my home now is in the United States, my soul very much resides in my country of birth and much of my work is a combination of the ethereal beauty of the Scottish landscape and studying nature in detail here on the East End of Long Island, also well known for its painterly light.
As predominantly a painter in mixed media, I came across the beauty of working in glass by chance. Working with a material that is both liquid and solid has opened a vast journey for myself as an artist. Light and contrast are important elements in my work, and I find glass gives me a huge spectrum of colour and depth to explore in the execution of my ideas.
