He explains: “The natural environment is a major theme in Icelandic art and the UHI course. The trip let me experience the work of Icelandic artists and will definitely help my own artwork in the next year of my course.
“I was also interested in how Icelanders make use of their own Viking and Celtic heritage and other cultural parallels with Uist.”
