Living on the west coast of Scotland, Ian is a painter exploring seascape and landscape in both abstract and representational forms. Working predominately in oil he is looking to capture the energy and the drama of the coast and the open sea.
Constantly exploring the emotional pull of colour and texture to create a narrative to bring the sea alive.
Ian also endeavours to bring this same energy into figurative, abstract and 3D work. My journey as an artist has been to produce, and express a deep inner Celtic identity through his creative work in all its forms.
His influences are too many and diverse to list. Ian will always seek to capture an essence, a feeling, a memory that can both be shared, but also a deeply personal experience.
Art is about having faith, believing in your own individual artistic voice, sometimes self sustaining, but never without the support of others.
