Some Little July Paintings & Gavin Maxwell

Some photo’s of new work, as you can see otters are a key subject, we are lucky to have these wonderful creatures close by. It was the poetic writing of Gavin Maxwell that first drew me to the West Coast of the Highlands, and to seek out these elusive animals – but unlike the ill-fated Maxwell I acknowledge that it was the fairies that brought me here, and I just observe otters as they should be – wild and free.
