The Spirit of the Highlands, for me, is about hidden beauty
The work I have created for Spirit:360 was inspired by the journey I took across the Inner Hebrides. The ferry journeys, the landscapes, the weather, the textures and the colours… Little moments in time or fleeting, changing views.
The Spirit of the Highlands, for me, is about hidden beauty. Not always the stunning mountains and golden beaches that make this such a special place – but the smaller, less noticed views. The far-off outlines of uninhabited islands peeking through the fog; the hundreds of tiny yellow shells hidden amongst the rockpools; the varying colours of wool caught in the barbed wire along wonky island fenceposts. If you look a little harder, you notice even more beauty in the landscape.
