I was born in Campbeltown, Argyll and brought up in Scotland, Australia, England, South Africa and Wales. I studied at Edinburgh College of Art and with the Open University.

Linocut is my first love; a versatile and expressive medium which can be turned to almost any subject. I work predominantly in black and white, seeking a balance between realism and robust cutting on the block to communicate (I hope) as directly and expressively as possible.
