Tapestry of the Islands is a dramatic deep teal canvas with hints of mauve in the dark hilltops of the islands. Made from an original photograph made on the clifftops of the Isle of Skye; the small islands in the image are Rona, Raasay and Tigh Eilean. Collaged layers of texture and image create the rich colours and add depth to the image. 60 x 60 inches with a 1 inch white border in white for handling. About My Work I believe in giving my clients beautiful artwork on luxury papers that hold their colours for a lifetime! For this special print of my work I will be using dreamy, smooth Canson Baryta Matte and the highest quality inks. I do all my own printing, having spent years learning this skill I prefer to maintain control of the colour representation at all stages to ensure you get a truly handmade image. People often say that my images look like paintings because of the richness of the inks I use, the depth of the black tones and the high quality papers that bring out the image to perfection. Canson are one of the oldest paper manufacturers in the world, they have been making paper and canvas for over 450 years in France. Other Sizes This print is available in other sizes request. I am happy to take custom orders, just drop me a line. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions just let me know.

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.
