From the west coast Arisaig Marina to Gourdon Harbour on the east coast, all have been painting subjects for Cath, who works with heightened colours using a palette knife to create popular quirky artworks.  Find Cath’s work here.

Ewan Thomson
Ewan’s work focuses mostly on the north east of Scotland’s coast, from little textures on drift wood to full blown storms, he likes to capture the things most people miss.  View Ewan’s photography here.

Hilary Postlethwaite
Hilary, who was brought up in Portsoy, showcases original oil paintings, including new works for 2017 based on recent Boat Festivals. She will also have available giclee prints and cards of selected paintings.

Liz Alerdice
Liz creates a wide range of work manipulating photography, print and other media, often inspired by nature.  View Liz’s work here.

John Glynn
John’s work is based on many Scottish villages, done in his own unique and recognisable style, where the aim is to create a feeling of happiness or nostalgia with a little humour too.  See John’s work here.

Rae Osborne
Rae records the unusual and beautiful scenery of the north east of Scotland, enhanced by creating still life images, for example light painting, onto the sensor or capturing bubbles.  View Rae’s work here.

Joyce Taylor
Joyce’s work is inspired by the sea, particularly the coastal villages of north east Scotland and the Mediterranean coast of France. Joyce works mainly in oils and watercolours.  See Joyce’s work here.
