Personal statement

I have been to Ullapool many times and have always seen it from a musical perspective, enjoying the tunes at sessions, the friendly venues and the comforting sounds of the sea.

This time I am experiencing Ullapool from an artist's perspective and I have appreciated taking the time to look more closely at the interesting buildings and how they fit historically into their surroundings.The old dwellings and sheds drew my attention as I began to realise how some were slowly disappearing into the landscape around them, abandoned by people and damaged by the weather.

The forgiving qualities of charcoal and soft pastels and my experiments with acrylics have enabled me to explore the different textures of these structures as they slowly depreciate and are being gradually reclaimed by nature.
