I am am painter and landscape architect (MLA Edinburgh University) which led me to artist in residents posts in Sri Lanka and India from 1993 to 2007. Namely Brief Garden, Lunuganga Estate; Peradeniya, Chandighar and Darjeeling Botanical Gardens. I moved to Belgium in 2007 until 2018 where I painted in the Kruidtuin, Leuven when not in my studio or working in arboriculture. I now live in Duns, Berwickshire, where I have my garden studio and I am a supply lecturer in horticulture at Borders College.
All images drawn and painted from life, in situ, in pen, ink and water colour. No plants were picked or harmed in this exercise!
