Jade Stout landscape influences

I have always loved the outdoors, the beach and fresh air. Growing up in Orkney this was everywhere. I grew up in a tiny bay called Houton in Orphir. The farm cottage I spent these early years in was only the width of a single track road from high tide. Being this close to the sea and elements from a very early age I was mesmerised by the power they have...

Once at art college I continued my love of art and from about 2nd year started painting exclusively with landscape as my main influence. Artists I found inspiring than and still do now, had a huge impact on how I developed my abstract landscape style.
