Inspiration: 2013 I received the Reg Rowe Art Scholarship. My proposal was centered around bridging the gap; finding local people and create their story on canvas. The intention was to highlight how their story adds a spark to the Highlands. To create a Solo Show where I could introduce one local to another, via a painting. What I discovered were the most interesting individuals and an explosion of magical stories.
I met Jim randomly and discovered his passion for training Thoroughbred Horses and how far and wide his occupation took him. I had the opportunity to watch him at work and how lovingly and calmly he interacted with the horses. He almost spoke a language of no-words, and yet as I watched him work, that silence spoke more than any paragraph ever would.
Majority of my work is created using a palette knife, thus the texture of the paint. The palatte knife adds immediacy to the work, which allows me to concentrate on the emotion and character of my subjects versus fiddle with detail.
