Here I Come
Size 30 x 30 cm
" Art has always been an important means of expression,
whether through drawing, writing or sculpting. It has remained at
the forefront of my passions, along with geography. Therefore it
is no surprise that having chosen an artistic route in life, my
subject matter has leant towards the landscape and wildlife.
Volunteering in a wildlife rescue centre for a time has no
doubt added to my knowledge, understanding and love of wildlife.
I am lucky enough to regularly get out in the 'field', be it
islands, mountains or machair to capture my subject matter with
pencil or camera. However I do like to retreat back to a
comfortable seat and easel to paint.
I have no intention to paint a 'realistic' portrait. My aim is to capture something else, a feeling, I suppose. I admire many types of art. With regards to my own work the impressionist movement, juxtaposed with traditional Japanese woodblock print has inspired my style the most.
I firmly believe, that the value and meaning of a painting is
in the eye of the beholder, so rather than me talk about it take a
look yourself and enjoy."
