Fiona Simes

FIONA SIMES -  HEBRIDEAN ART STUDIO - Artist

Fiona Simes studied Fine art and Print making in Hastings and Plymouth before moving to Skye in 1992. Her deep abiding love of the Highlands and Islands is a constant source of inspiration. She puts her heart and soul into her work, trying to catch emotional responses and the mood of a particular moment. The landscape, the history of a place, environmental issues, wildlife and the stories of peoples’ lives are important to her and colour her work in subtle ways.

She is married to a fisherman, has a big family, cats and sheep. Her small lino prints depict elements of a busy life in the Hebrides.

Fiona looks forward to welcoming you to her  studio in Laxay... the kettle’s on!

CLIFF STUDIOS - DAVID KNIGHT and MARGARET UTTLEY
Working art studio and gallery

David's drawings and paintings are a response to living on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis. Whilst abstract in essence, the tide, rocks, beach, sea, weather, light are the subject matter of his work. Paint is encouraged to run, drip, flood, wash, move across the surface and against collaged edges in the same way that water behaves as it washes over the beach surface or pools around rocks. Lyrical in nature, the paintings aim to form an experience of the landscape and are not a literal interpretation. It is hoped that, through the working process, the paintings eventually form an integrity and identity of their own.

Margaret aesthetically responds to the relationship between the vast sky and the Atlantic ocean, which leaves one feeling vulnerable and microscopic in one's own existence. The drawings and paintings aim to deal with this  feeling of scale and synergy within figurative forms. The atmospheric elements interchange within her work in order to form a lyrical, environmental cohesion.

The tactile surface textures found in nature entice Margaret to explore the dexterity of the painting and drawing materials, in order to suggest these varied surfaces and growths. Recently she has been working with clay, another beautifully expressive medium, making modest vessels and bottles that echo the coastal environment of Uig.
