From his studio in the Scottish Borders, Rob paints the landscapes of his home country in a way which reflects the people and stories that make each place more than the sum of its architecture and geography.
"I love to engage with the impossible and produce something that reflects my feelings about the place. Fundamentally, I am desperate to communicate a complete journey, where nothing is left out. This is why there is always an intensity of image."
Rob was born in Dorset and educated at Loughborough College of Art. Since he began to paint professionally in 1980, his work has been exhibited throughout the UK and sits in private collections worldwide.
ISLAND BLUE GALLERY
Island Blue Gallery is an art gallery and gift shop located at Baliscate, near Tobermory on the Isle of Mull. We have a beautiful, light space filled with works by many skillful Scottish artists ranging from the mysterious and tranquil sweeping landscapes of Garry Brander to the mythical and surreal fantastical worlds of Matylda Konecka. A lot of the prints we stock have a distinctly Scottish feel and truly capture the essence of Scotland's landscape and wildlife.
