After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 1987 I quickly became embroiled in work and family responsibilities. Only comparatively recently have I enjoyed the freedom to return to oil painting and more recently still I've 'given up the day job' to devote more time to learning how to do it!

After thirty years as a film and television producer, I decided to retire and do what I had always wanted to do - paint. That was about 10 years ago: I recently took part in '5 Painters' exhibition at the RGI Kelly Gallery - an ambition achieved.

'Ars longa , vita brevis' Life is short, the art is long. As time becomes more precious I find I give over more and more of it to art. From the night classes in my youth, to college full time in my 40s. I fear I will yet bleed.
