Thank you for visiting.

I live on the beautiful island of North Uist in the Outer Hebrides located 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 we have visited on holiday. 
For many years I have been using my paintings to illustrate my calendars for Alaska, North Uist and St Kilda. Then, a few years ago I decided to venture into unknown territory Ė wood carving. Many of these pieces have been displayed at exhibitions held by the Uist Arts Association. A few winters ago each member was given a small box frame in which we were to insert a piece of work for inclusion in their Small Works Exhibition. Rummaging in the garage I found some scraps of plywood and produced a small carving. It didnít sell, but it did lead me to explore this medium. Earlier this year, Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre asked if I would be interested in producing work for an exhibition this summer in the cafe. I love walking along our many wet sandy beaches and used this as a theme to produce about twenty carvings of sand ripples which have been decorating the cafe walls for the past two months.
I would like to thank the staff at Taigh Chearsabhagh for making it happen and to all who encouraged and supported me. Lastly thank you to those who purchased my endeavours.
