This acrylic painting was inspired by ruins on the outskirts of Tayport, depicting the effortless conquering of mans creations by natures defences. After all, the earth has been here a lot longer than we have and will manage without us for a long time after we are gone.
The wild East Neuk is a favourite haunt and sketching location for the artist. This watercolour sketch was painted on site, inspired by the sound of the breakers, endlessly,  destructively, crashing in upon the stunning, unique geology of the Fife coast.
Brooding clouds hang heavily over the prominent trees situated on the brow of Wormit Hill where Phyllis spent many hours as a teenager climbing and falling off these trees.e
This oil painting depicts the tragic events of 1879 when the high girders and train fell.
This oil painting is a compilation piece inspired by the lush damp green smells experience when walking the West Highland Way in a very wet early summer.
Another "Naturally Abstract " piece exploring the beauty and fragility of ice. This perfect, beautiful natural abstract creation had been the victim of human traffic. A poignant reminder of our often careless impact on the world around us.
"The Buachaille", arguably Scotland's most iconic mountain, proudly stands guard at the entrance of Glen Coe. A favourite mountainous region for many including the artist. Often haunting, threatening and brooding, this painting catches the Shepherd in better mood.
A "Naturally Abstract" painting in oils, depicting grasses, ice bound, yet surviving in a moorland pool.
