Robbie is a visual arts artist that lives and works in the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire and it is this local landscape that provides him with endless inspiration, becoming the main subject for his artwork. His contemporary semi-abstract pieces are influenced by his own direct experience with the landscape as it changes and reacts to the seasons, weather and time.
His work is predominantly made up of mixed media paintings that have developed from photos taken whilst immersed in this environment, whilst out walking or running. In these studies he aims to capture the beauty, mood and atmosphere of a place and show a fleeting personal momentary connection.
Robbie studied Sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art where he gained a Masters of Fine Art degree, he now mainly expresses his ideas and concepts through painting. He now has a deep fascination and appreciation of the properties and characteristics of materials, particularly enjoying layering and combining media, experimenting with different marks, textures and effects that contrasting materials can offer.
