Craig McKeough is a visual artist who has lived in the Perth Hills for more than 20 years and is constantly inspired by the natural environment and unique Hills lifestyle. He works in a variety of media, from charcoal and graphite to pastels and acrylic paint and, more recently, eco-prints, where he uses material collected from local flora to produce dyes and one-off unique images on paper. Craig's focus is always on creating expressive and visually exciting abstract images. His use of experimental and gestural mark-making hints at objects, landscapes and natural elements, and evokes a sense of place rather than a precise representation.
