From the series 'The Sound of Raasay'


The body of work made for the series 'Sound of Raasay' is the result of numerous visits to The Isle of Skye, My fascination with the island started some twenty-three years ago when I first moved to Scotland. It was in that same year that the Skye bridge was opened to some a controversial scheme but never the less the ease of access to the island that this created, meant that on my first tentative trip exploring the West coast that it was relatively easy although unplanned to extend my journey. It was then for the first time that I experienced the rugged, dramatic and varied landscape of this unique Island and regular trips have occurred year on year allowing me to further explore that particular wilderness. Although there are several areas of the island that I regularly visit. I Always make sure that on every trip I visit the Eastern side and in particular drive the coast road north of Portree and beyond the Storr, it's from here that you travel up the length of Sound with views of the Islands of Raasay and Rona, beyond which are the mountain ranges of Torridon and the mainland. Looking south whilst undertaking this journey also provides spectacular views of the Red Cuillin. The variety of potential subjects or compositions that this landscape provides and the endless possible vantage points to view the Sound, for example, climbing up to the Storr and the ridge above meant that I knew this relatively small area of the highlands would provide me with more than enough inspiration to make an entire exhibition.
