The strangeness of life

I originally trained as a visual artist, but had no idea then what kind of art I wanted to make. For twenty years or so I lived in Italy, India, Japan, Australia, and the UK; drawing, teaching English, studying Indian Art and philosophy, and eventually becoming an Adult Education lecturer here in Scotland. I gave all that up in 2009 to return to painting full time.

When I first started painting again I was interested in fractals and natural forms. After my first exhibition, 'WIld Life' in 2013, I  began to wonder how I could bring humans into my visual explorations of life and the natural world. I picked up my lifelong study of Indian art and philosophy and returned  that year to Karnataka, South India, where I studied Hoysala temple carvings and Jain murals. In 2014 my Indian dancers emerged.

In 2015  I produced a series of images for Rachel Amey's performance poetry show 'Peacock Blue' in the Edinburgh festival. It was inevitable. The peacocks merged with the dancers... and I found some forms to play with that allowed me to explore my sense of the undivided nature of humans and the natural world, and the overall weirdness and strangeness of existence.

This shop is my only online outlet. You can also buy the cards at Summerhall in Edinburgh, and Cahoots in Portobello.

    I'm a full time artist, seeking a way to use art to explore my sense of the undivided nature of humans and the natural world, and the overall weirdness and strangeness of existence.
