Our work expresses the emotional aspect of the wild and rugged Scottish landscape along with the ever changing weather and dramatic lighting that is only in the West side of Scotland.

We are proud to say that we are indebted to the Scottish Colourists and Joan Eardley.




Don prefers to work outside, and, by setting himself a time limit, he seeks to bring about an emotional charge and expression of being Scottish through physical gesture.

Don graduated in Drawing and Painting from Glasgow School of Art in 1965 and then taught for 30 years, 24 as a Principal Teacher of Art and Design in Gourock High. In 1982 he was sent to Japan to set-up art courses, and in 1992 was one of only three Scottish artists to be invited to take part in a week long Arts Festival in Germany.

End of last year one of his 'Synchronicity' series received commendationin a worldwide art competition run by the art and Culture magazine, 'Aesthetica'. It was his 'Synchronicity No. 11'

 



Jean prefers to experience the landscape while walking, (although she quite likes the challenge of working outside as well) and works later in her studio using images and impressions of what she has seen.

Jean, on the other hand, tossed a coin to decide whether to accept her admission to the Glasgow School of Art or to go to P.E. college. In light of her present love for painting she now feels that, perhaps, she did not make the best choice when she decided to go to P.E. college where she studied creative dance and then went on to teach in secondary schools until her children were born. However her interest in painting still continued and she was helped by a colleague of Don's, Jim Davis, and then, eventually, with Don himself, when they came together in 1995.
