VIEW IN MY ROOM
Pastel blue skies with soft summery light and a quiet deserted beach. A romantic afternoon spent by the shores of the mineral blue waters of the Isle of Harris. On days like this it seems there is nothing to do but sit and enjoy the peace and quiet of an idyllic day. Printed on beautifully smooth matte fine art paper that is guaranteed not to fade for over a hundred years. Print size 60 x 60 inches including a narrow white border for handling. My work is all about the emotional connection we have to a place and the moment in our memory when we felt such intense pleasure looking at a landscape. I am driven to capture the essence of a place with my camera, working mainly with the colours and shapes I see when I half close my eyes. I travel to remote islands, to places steeped in history, unspoilt beaches and wild rocky coastlines where I love to work in quiet solitude. I love printing and have long been obsessed with the materials I use. I love to work with fine art canvas and papers that are made for museum quality artworks. This listing is for the paper version of the print, this would be ideal for dry mounting or float framing. It is an great size for a room with a high ceiling yet it does not over power as it is in soft neutral tones. If you prefer a canvas, please just get in touch. Available in other sizes.

As a professional photographer I travel often to the islands of northern Scotland to make my images in places that provoke a profound emotional reaction. The colours, the textures, the wildness of the places and the history are all intertwined in a fascinating, and often bewildering melting pot of sensation that forces me to make art. After moving many times to get to where I should be, I now live on top of a cliff at the northern end of the Isle of Skye. Skye is a large and very beautiful island in the far north of Scotland; a place of inspiration, myth and legend. The beauty of the landscape draws artists and walkers, photographers and lovers of Nature like a magnet, and I am likewise smitten. Skye has a ruggedness and intense green hills that would make anyone pick up a camera or a paintbrush. My work has moved through variations on a theme of movement and colour. Whether the camera moves or I move or the landscape moves it is all the same. Colours, moving blending and soaking into one another create a sense of playfulness, the feeling you get when the wind is in your hair on a bright sunny day. More and more I wonder if there is any end to how one can capture the colours, the lines and the essence of a place. In my studio today, the bright green Hill of the Red Fox is shrouded in a light mist, the wind is howling and the clouds are moving quickly across the hills. It is a scene that makes my heart sing. I hope my work conveys some of the joy I feel when I see these colours, the harmony and the wind singing through it all. It is at least a quest that, hopefully, will last a lifetime.
