About Patterns of Light

Patterns of Light

Artist and maker, inspired by my Teuchter life in the Highlands of Scotland.

I was born in the deep south of Englandshire in 1983, and always had a love of anything art related. My grandmother sat me down with some watercolours at a very young age to keep me quiet one day....and that was when I first started to paint!

As a child my parents always brought me to Scotland for our holidays, so from a very young age (as long as I can remember) I had a love of the mountains and sea lochs of the Highlands. In 1993, fate intervened, and we moved to a village in Wester Ross called Lochcarron. I grew up in a warm and friendly community, and have to this day never wanted to live anywhere else. I dabbled in various crafts as I grew up, and would paint on and off, but I had a love of music also.....and so my school studies took me in that direction. When I was 16 years old though, I developed health problems and had to drop out of school to recover. I was diagnosed with M.E, and used my music and art as my therapy. I returned to school part time for a further three years to achieve two Higher qualifications, and then started part time employment in a craft shop/pottery and gallery in my local area. I remained in this job for 9 and a half years, and consider it an apprenticeship.

I never felt a desire to be anywhere but here, and after I got my first wee home in Kishorn, I regularly spent time with my friend Jenny in her shop - Patterns of Light. Sadly Jenny became ill, and in November 2012 she passed away. She had been a great inspiration to me, and I loved her art. Once again fate intervened.....and her husband sold me the business in 2014. So.....I now have my own little gift shop and gallery, and a working studio where I can create. Although not formerly trained, I have spent the last few years developing my artwork. I discovered a love for acrylics, and a few years ago I started painting on pebbles and slates (the idea being it was a smaller/easier way for people to take art home with them). I also love working with watercolour inks and mixed media, and more recently have been mostly inspired by the coast and the sea I live beside.

I now live on the Applecross peninsula, between Shieldaig and Applecross, in a beautiful isolated spot. My other half had built his house there, and hopefully at some point in the future we will be able to build a small studio out there for me too. He works on the water, and so he likes to think I get some of my inspiration from him ;) As well as art.....I also have a great love of dogs, and living here it has to be a border collie. So I spend my days at the shop in Kishorn, accompanied by our beautiful collie, Obi! If you are passing through Kishorn at any point, please look me up and pop in for a visit :)
