A warm welcome awaits you at Mingary cottage where you will find a selection of original watercolour paintings and one off ceramics.
I just love Watercolours. They are fascinating and seem to have a life and mind of their own, they are a bit like life itself – unpredictable. I work wet on wet laying down various washes without any detail, to create the harmony of atmosphere. This process ripens the temptation to indulge the imagination with magical thoughts and colours. The west coast of Scotland is my inspiration, land and sea from Cowal to the Highlands and Islands. I love the warmth and excitement of nature and the spirit of location.
I do love my islands and many of my paintings are taken from my various visits to Arran, Tiree, Jura, Skye, Colonsay, Islay, Harris and Lewis and of course St Kilda. All these places hold a mystery about them, that captures your heart. My garden too provides me with lots of interesting material.
I also create hand-built one-off ceramics, which can range from secret boxes to wall hangings, whatever inspires me on the day I work organically which allows the clay to inform me as to what shape and form things will take. Local beaches often gift me interesting handles for pots and boxes.
I have a limited selection of printed cards avaiable.
