Artist's Statement: My work is mainly landscape based and is inspired by the beaches of the West Coast of Scotland. Anyone who has ever stood on a Hebridean beach will recognise the emotions that my work tries to invoke from the vast expanse of sea and sky to the subtle colour and movement changes that come with the turning tide. I use mixed media and various techniques including wax and household paint in order to achieve the many different textures that are found on the shore.
