New Work

I have been working on a number of different pictures, including the cover for Ken Matthews new book, an image based on a tenement close interior in Garnethill, in Glasgow, and a canvas based on the wonderful stories and visuals from the golden age of detective fiction (just after WW1 and featuring writers such as Freeman Wills Crofts, Agatha Christie, Edmund Crispin, and John Bude.

         

Tenements and Poetry

Welcome to the site! Recently I have been painting further pictures in the tenement close series. You can see “The Letter” in the gallery page. I will post further images as they become available.

I have also been continuing my working from poetry and the written word with the painting “Summoning the Selkies”. This was partly inspired by the beautiful poem At Roane Head, by contemporary poet Robin Robertson. (You can see and hear the poet recite in this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hz2bto1ZVH0
