I studied Art and Design at the Froebel Institute, London, working with textile printing and mixed media. Lately I have concentrated on painting with both watercolour and oil and I have taken classes at Glasgow School of Art to extend my approach.
I paint on location whenever possible.
Nothing can replace the immediate impact of transitory sunlight, the wind on clouds and the sound of the sea. I am captivated by the light over the Highlands and by the ever-changing water – such a feature of our wonderful landscape.
I also love the shape and movement of boats, and the colours of the Fife coastal villages.It gives me great delight to share my work and I am always happy to take commissions.
Lots of my pictures are available as prints, many of which are available in our Gallery.During CoVid crisis, the images on this website are available for order.
I have recently developed a range of painted horseshoes using genuine used horseshoes. They can be done in any colour, and designs can be customised. They make great gifts for weddings, house-warmings or to say “Good Luck!”. https://kingslake.xyz/Email0141 942 1439
