About The Artwork

This original collage is inspired by the English fairy tale "The Three Sillies" in which the main character witnesses a crowd of people trying to rake the reflection of the moon out of a pond. (Collected in "Angela Carter's Book of Fairy Tales@) This is a part of a new body of work I am creating based on fairy tales and fables and how they may continue to relate to contemporary life. This piece incorporates vintage clippings from old books and periodicals magazines, old sheet music, and contemporary magazines, adhered to thick (pale blue colour) watercolour paper of approximately A3 size, using acid free PVA glue.

I am a figurative painter based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I'm inspired by everyday experience of life and especially people and nature. My paintings often focus on nature and the way people connect with the natural environment in our modern world, especially those of us living in cities and towns. I think about how important the environment is for all of us, and how the changing environment may affect our future lives. I record my ideas in sketches, photographs or plein air paintings, from which I often then develop larger works in the studio. I enjoy using the physicality and expressiveness of the materials - usually ink,acrylic paint or watercolour - to attempt to describe in visual language those strange or beautiful moments which always seem to elude capture in the written word. I am inspired by contemporary figurative artists such as Peter Doig, Marlene Dumas and Chantalle Joffe, but also by the Scottish tradition of painting including artists such as William Gillies and the Scottish Colourists, especially Cadell for his bold use of colour.
