'ME Has Impacted My Entire Life, But Not On My Ability To Paint… That In Itself Is An Absolute, Glorious Joy'

‘ME has impacted my entire life, but not on my ability to paint… That in itself is an absolute, glorious joy’
When Stephen Redpath picks up a paintbrush, his mind is instantly still.
He doesn’t think about the illness which forced him to quit his former career, only of the landscape which is gradually appearing on the canvas.
At one with his studio, which he jokes is suitable for a hobbit, Stephen can paint for hours.
He is forever inspired by the world around him, and can often be seen strolling around Tarland with a sketchbook in hand.
While few people can remain untouched by the beauty of Aberdeenshire, it is Stephen’s wondrous way of seeing the world which means he has already held his first solo exhibition.
To be featured within a year of taking up painting full-time is a remarkable achievement, and Stephen admits he is amazed by his success.
Stephen was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, also known as ME, last year – and believes painting has been his salvation.
