I create images of picturesque Scottish harbours and cottages in reclaimed textiles and hand embroidery. I generally work to commission, and recent work can also be seen in Eduardo Alessandro Studios in Broughty Ferry, Dundee.
I work mainly in woven tapestry and printmaking. The imagery used in the works is essentially abstract in character. I work in a variety of scales from miniature to large scale.
