Painting is something I do when all the important jobs around the farm have been done. Sometimes weeks can go by without even stepping into the studio. There are occasions when I’m on a roll and I can turn out several paintings in a day. These are the moments I like best although I am selective as to what I keep and what I scrub out. If a painting has given me a lot of grief I can get as much pleasure wiping it as I get from the successes.
My studio and gallery space at Kilmelford is easily accessible with plenty of parking and I am always happy to welcome visitors to have a look around if I am at home. Studio open other times throughout the year by appointment.
Turn off the main road south of Kilmelford signposted to Degnish and Melfort Village. 2 miles along this single track road turn left at the gates to Melfort Village and follow the road round for a few hundred yards. The gallery is signposted and is the next house on the right.
