‘I initially work from life; responding to landscape that I feel an emotional connection to, then reworked in my imagination. Showing local landscapes and work inspired by Scottish Islands. My ideas are inspired by a sense of a place, but this is only a starting point, then process takes over. I am currently working with two contrasting media: Painting using acrylic on canvas; and painting digitally, with a stylus on tablets using painting software. My digital work incorporates multi-layered images and photographs. Manipulating transparency, overpainting, and erasing and exposing the images underneath. I also use text in my work – they can be a stimulus to making a painting initially or added as the picture develops. I use words in a fragmented way – sentences are broken up, repeated, overlapped, or obscured.’
