The view from my studio
My studio is on the shores of beautiful Loch Carron, one of the first stops heading West on the North Coast 500 Route
Despite so many restrictions this year, I still had a solo exhibition at the absolutely stunning new Gairloch Heritage Museum in May and June this year. The exhibition was called Flora Gadelica or Lusan nan Gaidheal in Gaelic. It focused on the native plants of the North West Highlands of Scotland and included 10 botanical watercolours, 3 “plantscapes” and 4 plant portraits. I did a lot of researching, took photos and made loads of sketches. I’ll be writing about the plants in more depth over the next couple of weeks, here on my blog and sharing some of the sketches, notes and stories that I’ve collected during the project
I managed to complete 17 paintings for the Gairloch exhibition of which there is a selection below
I’m also held an exhibition with my friends Aileen Grant and Steven Proudfoot at the gorgeous wee gallery at An Talla Dearg at Eilean Iarmain on Skye this June. This exhibition also had a selection of botanicals, landscapes and “plantscapes”.
I’m selling some artwork again, just smaller work, shelfies, sketches and studies at my Etsy shop, but I’m currently only shipping to the UK, for the time being at least.
