Ross Is an Outdoors Man who teaches Bush Craft and Survival Skills as well as producing his art work. The majority of the work he produces has a lot of information contained if you know about the subjects. He tries to produce the art from minimum tools and with only items available to him in the woods.
Self taught, his works have sold in art galleries throughout Devon.
Currently with many projects on the go, he recently told us “I have a large oil painting of a woodland walkway - this is already SOLD. The frame is made from Beech. I made the frame using an axe and hand plane in the woods. The painting is of Beech tree’s so the frame will connect to the piece nicely. I also have another piece I call “Spiny Oak”, It is more of a sculpture from Oak that shows it’s natural growth. I am contemplating clamping this piece into an Oak hanger for display. This will be for sale when completed”.
In between his busy schedule, Ross is creating and preparing items for his Bushcraft Courses.

We are very proud to announce at West Country Galleries, the rising popularity of our talented resident artist Aisha Haider.
Her work has burrowed its way into the contemporary art genre with a bulls eye hit of recognition! Memories and feeling of times past and present are engraved with her signature of talent in every daub of the brush.
Aisha recently relayed to us: “I am really so pleased to hear I am one of the most popular artists on your website. Currently, I am concentrating on my tree and city paintings which are my favourite themes and favourited amongst the public too. My city and tree themed paintings have an element of shadow lights and reflections in them. I have exhibited my works at Pendle Gallery, The ACE Centre, Cross Street, Nelson, BB9 7NN. To date, I have sold over 200 paintings online since mid-2010.”
The quality of Aisha’s work has gained the seal of high quality in our estimation and the reward of owning a complete original is the trophy gained by admirers of her artistry.
Aisha also wishes to add: “I have never had an unhappy customer. I love painting; it is who I am and is now a love and a career”.
