My subject matter is found in the rugged landscape of the West Coast of Scotland.
In the villages, the beaches and the hills.

I tend to focus on the objects that give a place character: rundown iron roofed sheds; gates hanging off rusty hinges and washing line poles set at peculiar angles, reminding us of the presence of man and the passing of time.

For me it’s not about capturing a place with complete accuracy but to interpret a scene through a boldness of colour and contrast of light.
I ultimately want to reveal the veiled and conceal the familiar to give a strong sense of place.
