During my lifetime Glasgow, the city in which I was born and raised, has undergone rapid development. For every building that is knocked down a million memories are torn down with it. As the banks of the Clyde turn from heavy industry to tourism, how many lives have been changed?
My paintings reflect my thoughts and feelings on a lost history of place and time.
We all have these histories which one day will be lost. I bring together drawings and photographs to create paintings that depict a narrative of the interaction people have with their surroundings.
My studio based on the edge of the city centre and the Eastend of Glasgow gives me the perfect environment to reflect this kaleidoscope of memory and place, helping me to capture a very distinct energy.
