My work as an archaeologist, producing archaeological site plans, sections and artefact drawings and historic landscape characterisation helped to give me the background to fulfil my early ambitions to become a wildlife artist.
It is only in the past few years that I have had the time to pick up a pencil/paintbrush again since giving up professional archaeology and moving to the Outer Hebrides. One of the reasons my wife and I moved here is its rich and diverse wildlife and landscape, something I wanted to capture - both graphically and digitally.
I've always been interested in nature, science and history, and as a child I used to draw a lot, trying to capture as realistically as possible the natural world around me. As a result, I try to produce realistic, almost photographic, paintings and drawings. I suppose this is the scientist in me - I have an almost forensic eye for detail.
In my photographs and artwork, I try to capture the detail or 'essence' of the subject (whether it be animal, plant or landscape), but using an artist's eye for composition, placing and light.

Jon MacLeod is an artist and curator working across art forms and borders, exploring cultural and semiotic themes through a range of solitary and socially engaged strategies. In recent years this has led to a series of collaborations with Finnish artists through exhibitions, residencies and a tall ship journey.
Photographer and poet Magz Macleod documents the beauty and character of her island landscape in both words and pictures.
A member of the Society of Scottish Landscape Photographers whose work has been displayed in Highland and Edinburgh art exhibitions, Magz has also had her poetry published in various publications, recorded on CD, and performed live at the Stanza Poetry Festival. Her ability to see the whimsical and profound in everyday life is reflected in her work which can vary from subjects humorous, to the sensitive, and intense.
Photography is her passion; her love for her Hebridean heritage and its history radiates thoughout her written and visual images.

Elsie Mitchell's website
I am a South African born 3D Graphic Artist and Photographer. I currently live on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland out near the Callanish Standing stones. I have no formal training but a keen eye and a passion for learning in all my artistic endeavors. All my work is done in a digital format. I started with learning to build a webpage using basic HTML in 2001. Quickly my new learned skills took me to a fascination with graphic arts and 3d Poser work. In 2002 I moved with my family from Southern Ireland to the Isle of Lewis where I continue to learn from high end professionals but struggle to balance the need to learn with a busy family life.
Over time I have transferred my skills to photography as well, constantly learning and improving. My work is unique, sometimes quirky and always of a high standard. I am inspired by the beautiful country I live in, world travel, nature, history, archaeology, astronomy and just a little bit of magic.
