Professional member of variousĀ  Scottish artists' groups and President of the Society of Scottish Artists from 1989 to 1992.

Since 1975 research into the existence of "Naboland", an artistic concept that is based on found objects, art historical references and the associative contribution of my audience. "Naboland" manifests itself in drawings, paintings, prints and installations. The recent development is the creation of a "documentary" that will provide final proof for the existence of Naboland.

The areas of Naboland explored so far are:

  • Naboland - The North
  • Naboland - Across the Desert
  • Naboland - The Last Yeti
  • Naboland - The Italian Visits
  • Naboland - A Flemish Excursion
  • Naboland - The Viking Connection
