Neist Point Lighthouse, Skye
Located on Neist Point, the Isle of Skye. It was designed by David Alan Stevenson and was first lit on 1 November 1909 when it was a manned lighthouse. Since then the internal light system has been updated to an automated system that no longer requires daily maintenance. The light is 43 meters above sea level and can be seen up to 16 nautical miles offshore.

I paint digitally. Working with only flat areas of colour and no tone, I “cut out” colour shapes with a digital stylus on my computer, arranging them on different layers, creating a collage. In fact, I first began working this way years ago by cutting out sheets of coloured paper with scissors, similar to the way Matisse created his paper cut-outs. The paintings end up as digital files, therefore there is no scanning, they are printed directly from the computer onto a mould-made paper.
