My Story

I have lived for most on my life on the remote West Coast of Scotland – with my family originating in the Outer Hebrides.

I do make preliminary drawings and plain air sketches from location but often paintings just happen.  Working compositions are informed by sketches but shaped by my imagination.

Through my work I enjoy the physicality of paint and push it by the building up of layers, extending the range by tone, colour temperature and opacity.

Our response to line, tone and colour is the same as our response to sound. And like music abstract art is thematic. It holds meaning for us that is beyond expression in words.

The meaning in a painting is only going to be completed when somebody who looks at it connects with it.

My work

I use my Instagram page (@myscottishartist) to capture ideas, inspiration and the final results!  Please do follow and engage – you can view my postings below.  Paintings are available to view and purchase on the online shop and separately many are exhibited in a range of Scottish galleries including McCallum Art House, Fort William and Green Gallery Lifestyle, Dollar.
