About The Artist

Artist Statement

At the moment I am painting a series on reflections and the movement of water and watercolor is an ideal medium for this with its natural fluidity and luminosity. I have also been teaching a series of watercolor classes online which I really enjoy as it allows me to connect with students in many different parts of America.  I will be teaching several watercolor workshops this spring in San Rafael and Sacramento.


My studio will be open both weekends of Marin Open Studios:  Sat and Sun, May 4 and 5, and Sat and Sun., May 11 and 12

I grew up just outside Glasgow in Scotland. My grandmother loved to draw and paint in watercolor, and from the earliest age I have been fascinated by painting in watercolor with its brilliant colors, luminosity and sparkle. I came to San Francisco in my early twenties and have lived in the same house in Sleepy Hollow, San Anselmo for over forty years. Painting flowers in my garden, still life and the beautiful scenery of Marin County are a constant source of interest to me. One of my watercolors, “Mt. Tamalpais” was selected as a finalist for the “Get Covered” competition and article about artists in the May issue of Marin Magazine. One of my paintings was juried into the 2017 edition of the American Art Collector produced by Alcove Books in Berkeley, California.

This year I am particularly excited as one of my watercolors was accepted into the de Young Open 2023 which was at the museum in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco from September 2023 to January 2024.  I have also had one of my watercolors accepted into the California Watercolor Association’s 54th. National Exhibition, January 2024 – March 2024
