I am delighted to share with you a selection of my previous commissions and sold original paintings.
A view often appreciated along the Straiton village walks beside the Water of Girvan and where I have spotted kingfishers. I used this scene to create a black and white painting in acrylic ink.
I live just 5 miles from the Carrick village of Straiton and my husband and I often enjoy the trails around the village. I painted this landscape in 2018 and it's also the inspiration for our brand and logo. The skyline is a beauty, featuring the Straiton Monument...
In 2018 I studied portraiture at the Robinwood Art School and although it was difficult, I loved the maths behind the scaling of the facial features. Mixing all the different skin tones and colours in oil paint was enjoyable too. I generally don't paint portraits, but...
In 2016 I visited the Scottish island of Iona for the first time and it was an incredibly peaceful and beautiful location. I took a photo looking out to the surroundings waters which inspired this artwork using tissue paper and water mixable oil.
I lived and worked in London for six years and this painting always draws me back to that time. I love the red bus and the red telephone box. I donated this oil creation to the Ayrshire Sportsability charity in 2018.
The arrival of long tailed tits in the garden always makes me aware that Winter isn't far away and I created this piece using gesso, music sheet and water mixable oil.
We regularly hear the tawny owls in the trees above us at our countryside home in South Ayrshire and I enjoyed drawing this owl in charcoal onto music sheet paper titled "Singer in the Night" before I integrated it behind the branches of painted tissue paper.
Our cottage garden is frequented by blue tits all year round and I love the reflection created in the water with this watercolour painted in 2017. This was a special piece as it was the first ever painted I sold.
