Welcome! I am a wildlife and marine artist in Scotland. Surrounded by the rugged landscape and the beautiful white sandy beaches of Argyll on the West Coast, my paintings reflect the powerful energy of waves, wild or tranquil seascapes, boats, seabirds and wildlife.
Like many others these days I have taken to the Internet with an online shop. Any of the original paintings you see on this website are available to buy but some are with Hotels and Galleries who, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, are unable to open their doors during periods of lockdown. These paintings can be bought directly from me on their behalf in just the same way as normal but it may take a little longer to send them out to you.
The majority of my originals are painted in artist quality oils on a 100% pure linen 350 gsm canvas and the dimensions shown for each painting refers to the canvas or image size before it has been framed. If you prefer to buy a painting unframed, please email me via the Contact Page. Sometimes the colours shown on the screen may vary slightly from the original painting and I shall be happy to discuss this with you.
All the prints for sale on the Prints page are produced to order individually by a multi award-winning and long established Print Studio using archival quality, Fine Art Trade Guild approved printers, inks and papers. Tests have shown the prints they produce can last over 100 years! Having taken their advice, I have chosen two papers from their Eco Fine Art range - Hahnemuhle Hemp 290gsm for the oil paintings and for the watercolours and sketches - Hahnemuhle Agave 290gsm. Each print has a 2cm white border so it can be put straight into a frame without the need for a mount, or framed with a mount and frame of your choice.
You will also receive an ArtSure ‘Certificate of Authenticity’. Each Certificate will include a thumbnail image of your print on a 200gsm archival quality fine art paper, the artwork title, artist’s name, original medium, copyright date and edition details. The premium paper weight produces a Certificate that will last as long as the print it is authenticating.
Prints are produced, packaged sent to you directly from the print studio’s premises. They are beautifully presented and securely packed in either tubes or with an acid free backing board cut to the same size as your print's overall size, then wrapped in a protective cellophane bag for extra protection.
Canvas prints are supplied stretched with the image mirrored to wrap around the sides of the wooden stretcher bar. Ideal if you don’t want to have them framed. Produced on Hahnemuhle Art Canvas 370gsm, they have a soft satin finish and will arrive ready to hang with a hanger on the back of the canvas. An ArtSure ‘Certificate of Authenticity’ will also be included.
