2019 has been a very busy and rewarding year. I am very pleased to say that I have been elected as a member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW), and I'm very thankful for the warm welcome that I received from this historic and esteemed organisation.


I am looking forward to the coming year which looks to be equally busy, and I am particularly excited to have been invited to exhibit as part of a group of artists representing Scotland at the Annual International Watercolour Convention –  'FabrianoinAcquarello' – in Fabriano, Italy in May 2020.
