About Me

Originally from the south coast of Hampshire, I've been living near Kinross in beautiful southern Perthshire since 2003. My first visit to Scotland was in 2002 and I was instantly inspired and drawn to the amazing landscape.

I love having a job that is also my passion: dogs and wildlife! Having grown up with the family Westies, I finally got my first dog in 2004; Corbie, a Labrador.  Corbie has been my artistic inspiration and the walls are adorned with various paintings of him.  In early 2017, Logie, our latest Labrador addition, joined Corbie. Sadly, Corbie passed away on Christmas day 2017 at the age of 13 years, and is much missed.

Since 2014 I have been a volunteer with the RSPB (of which I'm a member), helping to keep watch over a pair of White-tailed Eagles. I've had so many wonderful encounters with these birds, and have got to know a few individuals.

My online Galleries show my various works. I hope you enjoy looking through them.
