Sports Writer & Artist
I work as a freelance sports writer and artist based in Scotland, UK.
My specialist subjects are horse racing, soccer, golf, tennis and rugby union. I have a good knowledge of British and International sports and am available for all forms of writing and research.
I have over 20 years experience in the newspaper industry having started at my local paper before going freelance to work on specialist sporting publications. My work includes research, article writing, typesetting, sub-editing and blogging.
I have also created a specialist horse racing website racingbookshop.com and have designed logos, banners, mastheads etc. including the above titles and RacescotUK. My additional skills include sub-editing, website design, creative writing, blog posting and historical research.
I can also provide the complete pre-press service from writing and research, design and layout through to print ready artwork. I work in Quark Xpress and Photoshop but can work from files provided in word programmes, email or hard copy and return them to you in .jpg or .pdf format as required.
I have a Fine Art background and also work as an equestrian artist specialising in horse racing with commissions from Canada, Australia, France and Ireland as well as here in the UK. I can create original detailed artwork in pencil, charcoal, water colour or acrylic and have exhibited in England and Scotland.
I offer a fast, efficient and friendly service and am always happy to answer any questions you may have.
