Thank you for visiting.

I live on the beautiful island of North Uist in the Outer Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland.
I am an enthusiastic painter in watercolour and acrylic. My principal subjects are usually this island, the surrounding sea and places I have visited on holiday. 

In 2017 I celebrated my seventieth birthday and to mark the occasion I set myself the challenge of completing seventy new artistic endeavours, one each day for the seventy days leading up to my big day.

In 2018 the big event here was the St Kilda Challenge Race. So, I set myself my own challenge, to complete twelve paintings to illustrate a St Kilda calendar for 2019. Some of these pictures were also used to produce greetings cards, each individually wrapped with envelope.

In 2020 I was in the process of preparing a St Kilda calendar for 2021, when we were suddenly in lock down.  The St Kilda Challenge Race scheduled for the summer was postponed, and as there was little likelihood many visitors I cancelled my plans for the calendar. But as the nights grew longer I decided to produce a small run calendar of North Uist.
