The early years
Having left Scotland to attend Carlisle College of Art & Design in the mid-80s, I spent happy, fun-filled years ‘finding myself creatively’. Once found, I managed to create enough work, of decent quality that I completed the course with not only a distinction under my arm (you’re welcome), but a great job to boot. Returning back over the border to start my career in Scotland as a shiny new junior designer. The fast pace and pressure soon followed.
A great deal of hard work, and my bulldog-like tenacity, saw me grow in confidence and stretch my ambitions. With projects for Scottish Tourist Board and the Forestry Commission in my portfolio, I dared to look for new horizons.
