Mark has spent most of his life visiting, exploring, reading about, talking about, living on or dreaming about life on the west coast. He moved from Glasgow to the Mull and Iona area over thirty years ago. Despite coming from an apparently non-boating background he’s been mad about boats since his earliest years.
Dougie is an artist and performer. He works mostly out of doors and has a particular interest in exploring the gap between human and animal. He makes art that tries to bridge that gap.
Dougie has a degree in Scottish Ethnology from Edinburgh University, where he studied folklore, customs and belief, and traditional cosmology.
