Art 4 Petes Sake


I began my creative career soon after graduating from the University of Dundee, Scotland in 2011. 

My work is bold and colourful. Organic gestures and brush strokes keep the conversation of a piece fresh in spontaneity. Poetry or words normally find their way into my paintings engaging myself and the viewer on another level.

With works collected globally, the last decade has seen me exhibit in galleries and work in studios from Edinburgh, Scotland to Barcelona, Spain. 

I'm now living off grid in central Portugal where I continue my self practice in a small studio tucked away in a Mimosa forest,, with the birds and the wild boar. x


I immediately fell in love with painting when I realised how instant the feedback was and how it could dramatically change my emotions and headspace. It has the power to move me the same way a walk in nature or a good song can. I favour lots of colour and the flexibility of the acrylic medium. I never know what I will create when I start or where I’m heading in life for that matter, but painting has become a way of taking some of the unknown and manifesting it into something tangible. I'm inspired constantly by my surroundings and the details that make up my world. I’m excited to see what my mind and body can create when working in the moment. x
