Art

Alice V Taylor

Alice  has worked with me on several projects, starting when she was still at school and provided all the hand drawn illustrations for the exhibition refurbishment of Cromarty Courthouse Museum. Since then we've worked together on a number of exhibitions and interpretation panels. 

Alice worked with two other Black Isle artists in 2020 on their 'The Sea Inside' community project - one of only 26 in Scotland to be successful in getting NatureScot 'Plunge In' funding.

Alice has her own website to show her etching and printing work

Her willingness and ability to turn her hand to whatever subject matter was thrown at her made her a delight to work with.

 

 

Pat Haynes

Pat created all the artistic interpretations of the buildings found during the medieval Cromarty archaeological dig. Her work is immaculately researched and provides an atmospheric insight into how the settlement may have looked during different time periods.


 

 

 

 

Mike Taylor

Mike has a long career as an illustrator, working for publishers such as Dorling Kindersley. Amongst his varied styles he can create quite astonishingly detailed reconstructions of buildings, ships etc.

 

 

 

Design


Iain Sarjeant

Iain is an experienced and highly respected freelance designer and photographer based in the village of Strathpeffer. I have had the pleasure of working with Iain on many occasions. His calm, considered approach - which is also reflected in his design style is very relaxing to work with and to view in the final product.

 

Iain has been self-employed since 2004, before which he worked as Publications Officer for Scottish Natural Heritage providing high quality graphic design across a wide range of SNH projects, ranging from small flyers to the organisation’s annual report. In recent years Iain has worked on many projects throughout Scotland, including many heritage and natural environment interpretive projects around the Highlands. 


 

Mark Smith

Mark is both a designer and illustrator, working under the name, markus bow.

He works with a variety of techniques, including hand drawn illustration and adobe illustrator.  Mark designed the corporate roller banners for my clients AOC Archaeology. Throughout this contract he was a consummate professional, always cheerful and efficient, with designs produced to a tight timescale.

 

 

 

 

 

Writing

Kenny Taylor 

Kenny has a strong track record of communicating his enthusiasm for history, culture, wildlife, science and landscape through a wide variety of media. Films, audio, websites, books, visitor centre installations and magazines have all benefited from his way of conveying information. This blends sound facts and great accessibility in a style that has won international praise from interpretation experts.

 

 

 

 

 

Research

David Alston 

David has over twenty years experience in historical research, with a number of publications, including ‘My Little Town of Cromarty’; the ground breaking Slaves and Highlanders exhibition (2007), which for the first time revealed the extent of the involvement of Highlanders in the slave plantations of the Caribbean; and essays on the subject in two books published in 2016.
