My past PR coverage includes:
It is so fascinating to see my work in different homes.
The diversity of taste and style, brilliant.
It is always such a pleasure when clients send me a picture of the painting installed in their home.
Thank you so much.
The picture here is one of my all time favourites. I am pictured with my great friend Shirley Spear OBE who has along with her husband Eddie created such an investment into their restaurant with rooms The Three Chimneys on the Isle of Skye. We have worked together closely over the years.
Examples of my work feature in the restaurant and The house over Bye. Stained glass panels I designed and made reflecting Shirley’s love of trees surround the entrance to reception were my paintings and reception desk, [which was one of my most challenging commissions ] great the arrival of guests.
I have included two photos from one of the days filming. I have to say Barkly affectionately called ‘Studio Dog’ was a complete star!
Script from Scott Ross
You can watch the film from anywhere in the world by downloading the ARTE app, searching for Isles of the Queen: Skye, and selecting the English subtitles.
Her documentary is the most lavishly filmed account of Skye, its Makers and People produced for many years.
It interweaves the stories of gin distiller brothers Alistair and Thomas Wilson, landscape artist Diana Mackie, chef Scott Davies, restaurateur Shirley Spear, weavers Andrea and Roger Holden, Skyeskyners Pete Winterbourne and Becky Hanley, Dunvegan Castle custodian Jeroen Roskam, swordsmith Rob Miller, Skye ghillie Mitchell Partridge, farmer Allan Macpherson, ferrymen brothers Colin and Donnie Macdonald from Glenelg and traditional Scottish hard shoe dancer Sophie Stevenson.
One strand of the film follows Diana creating a new painting from inspiration to completion, which now hangs in the lobby of The Three Chimneys House Over-By for all of our local and international guests to enjoy.

2017: Telling Tales
The MUSA Young Artist Award is an annual art competition for schools in Fife.
Our Young Artists this year explored different ways of telling stories and representing words with their artworks.
Winning entries will be displayed at the Byre Theatre St Andrews between 3rd June and 7th September.
I was asked to contribute a painting for this very worth while cause .
Organised by the John Casson Foundation who contribute enormously to various charities.
The event was for the Cornwall air ambulance.
A tremendously successful evening.
The image of our dancer below shows her sheltering from the impending storm.
As a landscape artist I have always wanted to appeal to the viewer’s imagination in finding a place to go in their visual exploration around the canvas.
Two of the images from our film ‘The Journey‘ Tina Forres-Hitt our wonderful dancer interprets the responses to the varying environments and weather.
Above the Clouds
The last image in the film before the dancer elevates into darkness.
Above the Clouds
There she goes,
above the clouds where Cobalt sky reigns over.
No need to rush the easy breeze To paint her memories.
Time melts the clock, all is quiet.
