I am currently enjoying working with cyanotypes exploring the Lewis sun-light as a drawing medium. Please see my blog ” Bog Cotton- A Journey into Cyanotypes” for more details. These limited edition cyanotypes are all for sale and also available as greeting cards. They are exhibited at Edinburgh Printmalkers and MacMillain Cancer on-line Christmas exhibitions 2023 and you can buy these works all year round at the Finsbay Gallery on the Isle of Harris.
The Callanish Stones are such an iconic landmark on Lewis and a place I love to spend time. In this image I wanted to move away from the many steriotypical images of the stones and portray them as an interconnected line of dancing calligraphic marks. This is a limited edition, hand printed screenprint.
Having used Circles abstractly, in many ways in my work over the years, I am enjoying exploring elements of the Hebridean Landscape through the circular format, via drawing, painting and prints. Sometimes it’s the striation in the Gneiss rock that captivates me, at other times the layers in the moorland and peat bogs.
Still playing at the moment and more of the fantstic hebridean colours coming soon…
