After studying drawing and painting at Glasgow school of Art I graduated in 1984 followed by a further post graduate year. I then spent a year at the State Higher School of Fine Art in Poznan Poland from 1985-86 having been awarded a British Council Scholarship. Since then I have lived and worked in Glasgow and have exhibited widely, holding 15 solo shows to date, alongside many joint and group exhibitions and art fairs in the UK, Europe, U.S., Canada, Australia and Singapore.
