You can find all of these prints for sale at Backwell House, a beautifully restored country house just outside Bristol. Much of the art you can see there is supplied by Hidden Gallery in Clifton as part of their Backwell Art. My work can be found in the gorgeous bedrooms but if you need an excuse to get away from it, they are well worth checking out. The house made it into the Sunday Times 100 Ultimate British Hotels List in 2016!

I really wanted to make a beautiful picture for my good friend, Sue’s wedding. Sue loves the outdoors – she regularly climbs mountains in Snowdonia and has a strong affinity with Scotland where she used to live so I wanted to create something that would remind her of places she had been to and hopefully an image that she could look at everyday that would draw her in. Certainly it had that effect on me when I was making it.
Anyway, I think they both liked it and it’s the first picture I haven’t framed, just stretched over a frame which makes it very tactile but also quite raw and fresh.
