My latest work is about the landscape. It’s about how it is part of us and we are part if it. How the clearance of land in Scotland left many ruins of houses and other memories of humans in the landscape. How, inspired by Jon Muir, we leave “only footprints” that add up to scarred landscapes and the consequent conservation projects. How through our use of mobile phones, every part of the landscape is now documented, shared through social media and images then the more remote and wild places are more known about and further footprints are left. How we are as much part of the landscape as it is part of us. We are nature, we live with nature and we are part of it. And how we are custodians, and need to look after it for future generations to love as much as we have.

My paintings capture the colours of the landscape, the shapes of the landscape, the beauty but also how my presence is part of that. Each painting has a hint of a figure, a shadow, a worn path, a presence, a building, a part of it that links it to humans.

This work has developed over the last year, moving from a more literal translation of the landcape towards a more abstract translation. This is all new work.

Please get in touch if you'd like to see any of these paintings in my studio. I welcome studio visits by arrangement.
