I grew up on Loch Lomond side where my love of the natural world was fostered. I went to school in Glasgow and graduated with an Honours degreee in History from the University of Edinburgh and then completed a Diploma in Education. I taught History and was Principal Teacher of Guidance at a large Fife high school until October 2007 when I took early retirement to concentrate on painting and printmaking.

I have completed a number of ourses with the Open College of the Arts, Leith School of Art and at Edinburgh Printmakers where I have been an active member for more than a decade.
I exhibit regularly (check News page for updates) and have had work in a number of open exhibitons including the RSA, SSA and PAI.
