I always wanted to live by the sea, listen to the waves and live my art. A few years ago I travelled up and down the coastline of Scotland in my search for such a place and I finally settled in the tiny village of Blairmore a ferry ride from my home-town of Glasgow on the West Coast of Scotland.
My studio-home is an old cottage built in 1860 at a time when this place was a holiday destination for rich Victorians coming in their crinoline dresses and paisley shawls on the grand old Waverly paddle steamer. This was a haven for new artists of the impressionist era, close to the home of MacIntosh and the Arts and Craft movement. Now, on quiet days, at the little old wooden pier near the house, all that can be heard is the sound of gently slapping waves, oystercatchers and echoes of times gone by.
In this place, where impressionist painters once walked and talked about colour combinations, light and movement, I have finally found my home, my place of inspiration a place to live my dream. I hope you like my work and please get in touch if you have any questions.
In 2010 I was shortlisted as UK Digital Photographer of the Year and in 2011 and 2012 I was shortlisted for the UK Landscape Photographer of the Year. I recently exhibited in New York and have work in several galleries in the UK.
