About

I was born and bought up in Glasgow Scotland - I am a self employed artist specializing in tapestry weaving and painting.
My grand father and his father before him were stained glass artists and I initially started art school in Edinburgh to become a stained glass artist but fell in love with tapestry weaving! I'm very lucky in that I love colour and enjoy creating pieces that can make people happy just because of my use of colour.
I work mainly to commission and also specialize in hand woven portraiture.
here is a copy of my resume:

EDUCATION:

Edinburgh College of Art BA Hons 1989

BURSARIES/AWARDS:
Nancy Graham memorial award Mar 2007
Theo Moorman Bursary 1998
“Highly Commended” Sainsbury Scholarship…
