About

Inspired by journeys over land, sea & through time. I live in Dunnet, on Dunnet Head, Caithness, Scotland, only 2 miles from where I grew up in the village of Brough.  My artwork takes inspiration from our heritage.  As both participant and instigator of arts and heritage projects and collaborations I have worked in Taiwan, South Korea, Iceland, USA, Canada, Estonia, Catalonia and exhibited world wide.
