    Rum & Eigg

Since graduation from my M.A in Fine Art painting in 1997 I have now been painting for 19 years. I still believe strongly that the substance ‘paint’ has become so versatile and changed so much over the years that I am still finding new techniques to express and recreate my landscapes. For me Scotland has been the choice of place because of the beyond inspiring places that exist in this extraordinary Land. Scotland, specifically Skye, the North West Highlands and the islands from Elgol. Capturing the extraordinary light on the landscape for me is my mission as a painter.

Ultimately I want to show how modern day mediums and techniques can express these small moments of light on this unimaginable landscape. Some of these paintings have taken a few years to do, building up layers and creating new ways of mixing mediums. The paintings are about capturing those small moments when your are looking at the Scottish Highlands . As Inspiration goes, Scotland never fails. I am always stunned and silenced by what I witness in the highlands. I hope this is what is captured in the paintings.
