Hidden Art !

I have hidden small paintings in the landscapes that inspire me for you to find.


If you find one it is yours to keep, all I ask is that you get in touch with me to let me know that they have been found, and I would love a photo of you with the painting.

If you are not familiar with map co-ordinates, map-reading or navigating in the outdoors, the links on the right of this page will tell you everythng you need to get started. Please pay special attention to the 'Safety on the Hills' link! The landscapes that I paint in are beautiful but wild places and should be treated with respect.


I'm really excited about this project. The idea is to encourage people to venture out into, and explore, the landscape which has inspired me to paint. I hope that they will discover a little of the natural beauty and wildness that I try to capture in my work.


I've also posted the co-ordinates on my facebook page and will be having a draw to give away an additional painting to people who share the co-ordinates with their friends and followers.
