My work is figurative and for the most part based upon narrative. I am particularly inspired by Scottish legends, folklore and fairytales which I source from the old oral storytelling tradition, songs, poetry and other printed texts.I work on paper using mainly pastel, ink, acrylic paint, gold leaf and collaged materials. My commissions have included posters and illustrations for the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh.
