The Easter holidays are here, and in the next few weeks everyone will be putting their boats back in the water after the winter. Here on the west coast of Scotland, we are sheltered from the full force of the Atlantic by the scattered islands of the Hebrides. Even a small rowing boat can go out into the Sound of Jura in search of mackerel. As we haul on our lines, we enjoy watching the gannets, who are also fishing for their supper.
Having travelled the world to make wildlife films for the BBC NHU and National Geographic, I have now settled on the west coast of Scotland where I use painting and print-making to express my thoughts about the natural world.
