Cairngorm Framer, Boat of Garten, design

Cairngorm Framer

As a Scholar James' interests were in the creative side such as art & design, wood and metalwork. These tendencies led him into a joinery apprenticeship where he got involved with many building projects. The creative side took him more into cabinet making and finishing work.

The photography side is a similarly creative notion which came to the fore on a 10 month trip to Australia and new Zealand at the age of 23. His first SLR camera , a Canon AE1 Program was bought while there. On his return James started taking local scenes, getting prints made, and then framing them in his workshop.Pressures of work and family put this fairly much on the back burner for almost 20 more years until the lure became too much to resist. The challenge of combining elements of nature, with light and timing is addictive.

Getting out of bed not long after getting into it, to then head out in dark, sometimes wet conditions is often rewarded with spectacular lighting conditions as the day breaks.The workshop of today is more technical. From the capture of the 21mp SLR camera through to the archival inkjet printing process and finally to the framing bench for the finishing touch. These framed and canvas style images are beautifully presented and now proudly owned by many.

He is totally self taught through experience& experimentation and James has now produced a fine portfolio of predominantly local landscapes which are displayed at many Galleries and retail outlets in the area.

He has also produced work for various publications, Books & websites.

Waiting for photo of Driftaway Art, Nethybridge

Driftaway Art

Jo specialises in driftwood crafts, mainly mirrors and candleholders. She finds the forms, texture and grain of the wood fascinating and beautiful and loves nothing more than combing local beaches.

Each piece of wood carries its own secret history, from the journey down a river or across the sea, tossed and carved by the waves, nibbled by fish and crustaceans to be beached onto the pebbles or sand.

Jo chooses the wood carefully with each unique form showing the craft best suited to produce a piece of functional art.

Why not take a piece of recycled Driftaway Art a wee bit further on its voyage!

Rona Kant, Carrbridge, design

Rona Kant

Rona developed her passion for painting when she moved from Glasgow, to the Highlands of Scotland in 2000. Inspired by the majestic surroundings of the Cairngorms National Park where she lives, she started to paint in acrylics to capture the light and convey the intense colours which are evident in her work today.

Prior to her move to the Highlands, Rona graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art with a First Class Honours Degree in Interior Design, and then went on to gain a Master of Arts Degree in Furniture Design and Technology from Brunel University. It is this background in design which has helped Rona to achieve her distinctive style that she is known for today.

Rona took up painting as a part time career at the start of 2016 and has spent much of this year working on the many commissions she receives. She has also been exhibiting with ‘Creative Cairngorms’ throughout the Badenoch and Strathspey and Inverness area, as well as having some of her work on display in Aviemore and Carrbridge.

She currently has work hanging in the Royal Bank of Scotland in Aviemore and Rona’s work is held in private collections throughout the UK, Europe and Canada.

David Fallows - Spirit of the Cairngorms

David was originally trained in oils, but over time moved toward watercolour painting. Today, he uses a wide range of media - oils, watercolour, acrylic, pastel and mixed media.

Living in Newtonmore, he works from a studio in Chapel House Arts, Kingussie where his work is always on display. He also exhibits with Creative Cairngorms, at Loch an Eilein Gallery, Society of Badenoch & Strathspey Artists’ exhibitions at the Iona Gallery and other locations from time to time.

David also has a wide range of limited ad open edition prints together with cards, fridge magnets and keyrings from his work. David welcomes enquiries from potential trade outlets and is also always happy to discuss commissioned work with new clients.
