Greg Dobson is one of the founding members of the Bridge Art Collective, he is a very popular and much-loved artist. Locals will be familiar with his stunning poppy and dove sculpture at the Balmacara war memorial, a collaboration with Plockton Highschool to commemorate the Armistice. Greg grew up in the Midlands of England and it was a family project that drew him to the Highlands. His training is in Industrial design along with a degree in Ceramics and Glass, and he enjoys 'blending' different disciplines. Greg's work features in local galleries and further afield and he has produced some very striking large public commissions. “I take my inspiration from my environmental surroundings and more recently I've been working in plasma cut steel. My work is defined by its processes and the minimal surface finish that it requires both for indoor and external use and the shadows and light that the sculpture casts.” Greg enjoys working on Community arts projects and teaches at the High School working creatively with the children. Furthermore, he creates fabulous (and enormous!) puppets with his group the highly innovative Black Dog Puppet Company. Greg has recently opened a new workshop/gallery in Kyle called 'Create'.
