Dundee-based artist, Carol McEwan, creates art prints from her favourite Scottish landscape photographs.

“Searching for Scottish art prints whilst decorating my own home, I struggled to find anything I liked.   I combined my creative skills in graphic design and my passion for interiors to create artwork from my own photos of the Scottish countryside.

In my previous life as a fashion designer, I lived all over England and often travelled abroad. I would always get homesick for Scotland, so every time I went back home I’d take photographs of the scenery I missed so much.

I created my first print from one of these photos, Broughty Ferry Beach, to remind me of the Dundee seaside. Its calming, neutral colour palette still makes it a customer favourite today.

After living in Glasgow for a wee while, I happily moved back to Dundee (my hometown) with hubby & kitty cats in tow.

As well as selling my art prints online and in gift shops, I run a small, graphic design business called the Wee Design Studio. I work out of a small home studio, where I love being creative every day.”

Fine Art Giclėe Prints

To create her artwork, Carol selects a photograph on her iMac and then manipulates it by adding textures, colours and effects. A Highland print for example, may include a scan of local tweed fabric in the hills. A seascape might have a closeup of sand on its beach and watercolour paint layers added to the sea.

The overall result is a more subtle, painterly effect which adds an ethereal quality to the original photograph. So rather than just being a visual representation of a place, there’s more of an atmosphere about it.

This process takes many, many hours to achieve just the right combination of depth, colour and texture which adds a new dimension to the image, bringing the original subject more alive but also making it more abstract at the same time. 

All giclée prints are:

  • Professionally printed in the UK by a carbon-neutral, Fine Art Trade Guild registered printer.
  • Printed using high-quality pigment inks which can last over 100 years.
  • Printed on Artsure-approved, archival-quality fine art paper.

Carol’s art prints can be bought online and also in “real life” in selected gift & homeware stockists throughout Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow & Perthshire etc.
