For commissions, please contact me to discuss ideas.
Scratch art is new to me, I discovered the work of a Norwegian artist who used a similar technique whilst I was working at the local art gallery and it inspired me to have a go. Initially struggling to make my own boards, I finally found ready made scratchboards made of china clay and Indian Ink and have now created a number of originals and some are open edition prints which you can buy at the studio in Thurso. You may see me working on commissions and new ideas, I like to swap between jewellery and art to keep things fresh.
I entered Sky Portrait Artist of the Year where I drew Ashley Walters using my scratchart method. I had 4 hours to create my artwork whilst being filmed and interviewed and then was judged on my efforts. It was a fantastic experience and I thoroughly encourage anyone who enjoys art to watch the whole series. The series I am in is Series 2019 episode 2
In 2011 I won 'Best Artist' in Country Living Magazine's first Kitchen Table Talent Award. I had been developing my own technique for a couple of years before, using iron wire used normally for binding silver in the soldering process of jewellery making. It had been a progression from continuous line drawing whilst drawing the animals at The Highland Wildlife Park. I then spent a long time drawing boats in the harbour near my house. I have created numerous artworks and commissions using a variety of thicknesses of wire and often add found objects to enhance the pictures. Here are just a few images of the work I have created.
