I am an artist and amateur photographer from Scotland. I work in a variety of media and don't have a set style of work, as you will see, because I find inspiration everywhere. I am currently producing and selling a number of products using my back-catalogue of work and introducing new pieces on a regular basis. My products include: posters, t-shirts, greetings cards, If you are interested in any of the products, please click on the corresponding photograph and you will be taken straight to the product page or visit the store to view all current products.

Art Nouveau Triptych Postcard

This postcard design is based upon a a sketch for a mirror frame (to be made in beaten metal) by Frances MacDonald of the 'Glasgow Four'. The original sketch features one woman with an all seeing eye and organic forms that would extend around the mirror glass. I found the all seeing eye rather distasteful and creepy and substituted what I'm choosing to call sun discs. I created the background using several transparent layers, some scratchout brushes and lighting effect. I then put the finished result on zazzle as a poster print, but decided that it would also work really well as a tryptych of sorts and so I flipped the original image, recoloured sectons of it and put the panels on a black background. I'm pretty pleased with the results, which is rather unusual for me, I normally seem to think that I could have done better.
