Standing at the top of a cliff on the Isle of Skye, I can only wonder how lucky I am to live where I do. Up here at the north end of Skye, we have views all around that emphasise the remoteness of our little island. For miles and miles all you can see and hear is dominated by water, sky and wind. From here we have a view of other tiny islands like ourselves, blue islands swirling in mist and cloud. In this image, Raasay (Isle of the roe Deer), Rona, and the tiny Eilean Tigh (Home Island), seem to drift and fade like the myths and legends that surround them.
Available in other sizes.
About My Work
I believe in giving my clients beautiful artwork on luxury papers that hold their colours for a lifetime! For these special prints of my work I use dreamy, light textured Canson Canvas and the highest quality inks. I do all my own printing, having spent years learning this skill I prefer to maintain control of the colour representation at all stages to ensure you get a truly handmade image.
About My Materials
People often say that my images look like paintings because of the richness of the colours, the depth of the black and the texture of the materials I use. Canson are one of the oldest paper manufacturers in the world, they have been making paper for over 450 years in France. Founded in 1557 and printers to Louis XVI, their paper was used by Voltaire and Napoleon and the Montgolfier brothers used Canson paper to make the first hot air balloon. Canson paper was used by Picasso, Ingres, Chagal, Miro and many other artists. They have been making paper and canvas for photography since this art began over 150 years ago. Canson are Eco Friendly - they purchase paper pulp only from forests managed in a sustainable way which also makes them pretty special.
This print is available in other sizes on canvas or paper. I am happy to take custom orders, just drop me a line. This print is available as 30 x 45, 20 x 30 and 16 x 20 inch prints, get in touch for these sizes.

A Note on Canvases
Canvases are unframed and unmounted, they need to be stretched or framed once you get them. They are matte varnished and come with 1.5 inch (4cm) gallery wrap or with white or dark coloured sides, just let me know which you prefer. Once ready, they are carefully wrapped in acid free tissue then shipped in a sturdy art tube to ensure safe delivery. All taxes and duties to be paid by the receiver.
Thanks for looking, if you have any questions just let me know.
