David Body studied Illustration at Twickenham College and worked for various London design agencies before moving to Caithness with his wife Sally in 1977 to set up the Scarsferry Pottery and then the John o’ Groats Pottery and Gallery. In 2012 David decided on a change of direction and so closed the pottery and moved to Inverness to concentrate on his paintings. The Highland landscape, and particularly that of Caithness, is his main source of inspiration, with imagery of croft houses, harbours and sheep featuring prominently. His style of work, combining mixed media, paint and collaged elements has been influenced by his earlier career as a graphic designer. The abstracted designs, carefully considered angular compositions and strong colour combinations work together to suggest the effects of light and weather on the landscape.
