I am a Scottish multimedia artist and writer, with a long career as a freelance journalist and photographer.
I have held staff and executive positions in the national print media. I write books on a variety of topics in both fiction and non-fiction. I am active as a writer, photographer, printmaker and publisher.
I graduated with Bachelor of Art with Honours from Edinburgh College of Art in 1983, majoring in sculpture and also pursuing life-drawing, printmaking and film-making.
After graduation I worked in film-making before returning to photography. Subsequently I worked for a number of national titles on staff and nearly all, as well as internationally, as a freelance. I was one of the launch crew for Scotland On Sunday, and became Picture Editor there.
During this time I also pursued Journalism Studies through Napier University in Edinburgh.
I graduated with a Master of Fine Art degree from Dundee University in 2011, where my practical area was photography and printmaking, especially photogravure.
