2015 is going to be mad....!
I am in the process of opening another ’Harbour Gallery’ in Ullapool to work alongside Tarbert & Tighnabruaich.
The Ullapool gallery is centrally located and approx double the size of the Tarbert Gallery. It will become ’the sister gallery’ reflecting what is sold in Tarbert with a mix of work from Sutherland and beyond. Hoping to have a grand opening day on Good Friday - 3rd April 2015.
I will keep you informed.
Had a busy week.....delivered new work to ’Pier Red Gallery’ in Berwick Upon Tweed (8 new paintings) and ’The Coldstream Gallery’ in Coldstrem, Scottish Borders (7 new paintings) and 2 of my new ’ Highland Coo’ paintings to ’The Harbour Gallery at The Royal’ Tighnabruaich.
Excited to announce a new ’expansion’ for The Harbour Gallery............The Royal an Lochan Hotel in Tighnabruaich and myself are teaming up and I will be showing over 150 works in the hotel all year round, these will be Originals of mine, prints and local charts,maps and memoribila, reflecting exactly what I sell through the Gallery in Tarbert.
We will be advertising and promoting it as ’The Harbour Gallery at the Royal’ and will be all set up for the 1st of Feb.........This will include 20 new originals, so as you can imagine...busy, busy, busy !
I will update and email everyone on my mailing list when promo work is all done.
A busy year coming for me with new paintings being worked on right now for galleries across the country including 3 New Galleries in Northumberland, aswell as new work going on the walls of The Harbour Gallery.I will be posting pics in ’Original Works’over the next few days of most recent work.
Thanks.................Great opening day for the Exhibition, locals & buyers from further afield drunk the wine dry !
The ’Christmas’ word, is up and running, I’m now,as always, chasing deadlines...................from Galleries and Private Comissions, however, this year, I seem to be on track. I’m already talking to new galleries in England for work in the Summer of 2015 !
However, always open to offers !
Available to view in ’Original Works’, my latest paintings for my exhibition in The Harbour Gallery. These also include my new ’Yacht Series’, charcoal drawings on original charts, some dating back to 1899. These are large pieces and really need to be viewed in person...so come along on the 29th for the opening of the exhibition and join me for a glass of wine.
We have a new member of our family - a West Highland puppy called ’Sketch’, he is with me daily either in The Harbour Gallery or The Art Studio, its hard work but worth it ! In the exhibition I have also included some chalk drawings of the wee fella as he is becoming well known in Tarbert.
Added all recent work to this site tonight (Galleries in Arran, Mallaig, Plockton, Ballachulish and Tarbert - as below) click on ’Originals’.
New work on the easel for Barry Keane Gallery (Henley on Thames), Artisan Gallery (Portobello), The Archway (Lochgilphead) and Blackhall Gallery (Edinburgh). As always, it will be a busy month but I will keep the site updated with new images.
Just delivered new work to Arran Art Gallery, The Studio (Plockton), Mallaig Art Gallery, Holroyds (Ballachulish) and of course The Harbour Gallery - Tarbert.
Will be working on commissions and new paintings for various galleries over the next few weeks.
Aswell as this, I’m starting new work on a ’Tarbert Series’ which should culminate in an exhibition in The Harbour Gallery later in the year.

28th Jan 2012.
Since the eye was removed in Nov last year, life has got better, certainly less pain and irritation. I will be going back in a few weeks to finish the fittings for the ’proper’ fake eye.
(June 2013. ’New’ fake eye fitted and adjusted....looks good! Headaches though !)
(May 2014. ’Dodgy Eye’ now part of life....- I either feel like I have been punched in the side of my head , or someones doing ’dental work’ in my eye. I’m told the nerve endings should ’calm’........over time.......this is a 24hr toothache in my eye socket ! Life goes on !!
Now showing paintings in The Corfu Gallery, Corfu Town. As a family, we rented a villa and I produced paintings for the gallery to sell and I will add work this year. We hope to have a small exhibition there in Oct 2014
Selling work in Jules8 Gallery, Puerto Pollensa. New work on display mid summer 2014
The Harbour Gallery has been open for almost 3 years now and has totally exceeded my expectations.Sales are up on projections across the board, with sales of my original work and the Steamer/Ferry timetables that are mounted up, proving popular.....A good mention in ’The Scottish Field’ as one of the top ten places to visit in Argyll !!
Keep visiting and tell your friends !!!
Pleased to announce the opening of my own Gallery......’The Harbour Gallery’ in Tarbert, Argyll. Opened its doors on Thurs 15th March and celebrated with an opening weekend on Sat 17th & 18th March, guests were invited to join us for a glass of wine to view new works by myself and a large selection of artists from Argyll and around the UK.
The gallery prides itself on the quality of New Original work and will refresh constantly with a chance of a first time viewing of newly completed works.
There are a varied selection of Framed and Mounted prints showcasing Scottish artists past and present, aswell as a unique portfolio of Vintage and Retro prints focusing on Travel and Advertising from around Scotland, with local interest from - Original Steamer Timetables to Original Cloth Maps and Antique Postcards of the area all professionally mounted and with the option at source - to frame.

This is a very exciting venture for myself and my family, I have been waiting for the right location in Tarbert and now its happened.
The Harbour Gallery website - www.theharbourgallery.com is now LIVE (March 2013 !!)
My Studio ’The Art Studio’ will remain as it is, the gallery is a totally new project in the centre of Tarbert - located on the corner of Harbour St / Campbeltown Rd, opposite the PO & CO-OP and next door to the Bank of Scotland, Fletchers deli and the ’top paper shop’......basically, where ’Woods Estate Agents’ was.....’The Harbour Gallery’ now is !!

Over the next few months I will be working on paintings for Galleries around Scotland, England, Spain, Greece and Germany and my Solo exhibition at The Torrance Gallery, Edinburgh in June 2015. Galleries at this time of year are seeking new work all the time, yet a couple of galleries have already approached me for exhibition dates for 2016...I will keep you updated !
