Her subject matter includes townscape, seascape and still life. Her large still life paintings are very involved with pattern and shape and she has become increasingly interested in the use of dramatic light and shade, as is evident of her oil paintings of French villages and Italian townscapes. She draws on the effects of sunlight on an object, be it on a building or on water Nearer to home, she spends a lot of time in Argyll where she paints the sea and the ever changing reflections of light on water. She works from her studio in Glasgow but in the last few years she has also spent a lot of time in France, Spain and Italy where she has found much of her subject matter.
She has established a good relationship with several galleries where she exhibits regularly. These include Blackheath Gallery, London and Richard Hagen, Broadway.
