My name is Mark McCallum, I am an artist based in Kirkmichael Perthshire, on the edge of the Cairngorm National Park. I have been painting since leaving University in 1988 with a degree in Fine Art.
Living in the Highlands since 2004 has given me the opportunity to fully explore the outstanding and breathtaking landscape that Scotland has to offer. My paintings reflect the ever changing mood of remote sceneries, dramatic skies and vast beaches, as well as the colourful mountain flora and geography.
Approaching the work with a bold palette, an impressionistic style and semi-abstract representation, and by incorporating mixed media and found materials from the local areas depicted, I try to achieve a sense of authenticity and belonging, allowing the viewer to breath and immerse in the landscape.
My wife Sally handcrafts tweed cushions and other tweed goods, using my images, to create a unique bespoke product.
