Quite simply, I love to paint. My inspiration is the world in which we live, especially Scotland’s unique natural environment with its sweeping landscapes, stunning coastlines and distinctive flora and fauna. My portfolio also ranges far beyond these shores, however, to produce memorable images from a wide range of subjects and places that have caught my eye.
I work in a range of mediums but regularly return to my favourite of waterclolour which is particularly well-suited to flower paintings as it allows me to reproduce the wonderfully subtle changes in colour and form that so many of us take for granted when we look at the world around us every day.
My vision is to bring original and affordable art to as many people as I can so that they can share the sheer joy of beautiful and striking images in their own homes, not just in a gallery.
I hope that my paintings can transport people away from the routine of their daily lives to a new and exciting place in their imagination, their memories or their dreams.
In a world where so much is mass-produced and lacking in identity, nothing makes a more distinctive gift to mark a birthday, anniversary, retirement, wedding, business venture, new home or personal milestone than a unique work of original art painted specially for the recipient.
I regularly undertake commissions to paint subjects that mean so much to different people. It might be a view of a special place that brings back particular memories, a simple flower that recalls romance and special joy, or just a painting that strikes a chord and generates delight. The pleasure that brings to people as they enjoy the artwork every day in their home or office is hard to describe.
Commissioning a painting from Mark4Art is simple, affordable and strikingly personal, offering the opportunity to create a unique and outstanding painting that says so much more than any other gift.
If you see something in my portfolio that catches your eye and would like to commission a similar painting, or have an idea of your own, please contact me and I will be happy to discuss your concept with you.
Some of the original paintings in my portfolio have been sold, but I can provide prints or cards from them.
