Magi Sinclair is a landscape artist based in Caithness who has an affinity for wild places in the north of Scotland, typified by the vast low landscapes and huge skies.
Her particular interest lies in closely observing the small details in this landscape - things often overlooked - patterns, textures and the intrigue of the plants and wildlife that cling on and thrive in such isolated places.
