Cryptic Pieces

I paint these in situ to blend with the surrounding landscape so each piece belongs to a unique spot within a woodland. 

Potter Painter Poet

The collaboration with Paul Tebble, potter, and Elizabeth Burns (1957 - 2015), poet, started a few years ago culminating in A Potter, a Painter and a Poet at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015 - a huge and diverse exhibition. In March 2016 the StAnza International Poetry Festival  hosted a second edition of the show in the Preservation Trust Museum in St. Andrews.  A Potter, a Painter and a Poet catalogue book was published in March 2017 and includes a DVD of Sitar Rose's beautiful film of the collaboration. This is available to buy for £35 


Drawing is very important to me - it's an essential way to explore what I see and to work things out. But it's also a medium I use in its own right to portray a more finished representation. HB pencil is my preferred tool.

Ben Lawers series 2012

Mostly painted around three to four years ago - various portraits of the range of plants, habitats and plant communities found on this special mountain.
