Our Artists

The Ness Deli is proud to display some of the Highlands finest artwork and photography on its wall, most of which is available for sale at the counter. From technicolour coos to ancient castles, we’re sure we’ll have something that will catch your eye (besides the food!).

Below you can find short summaries for each of our artists, with links to their respective websites.

Steven Brown

Starting painting in only 2012, Steven Brown has become a national name for his incredible use of colour, abstract technique, and Scottish subject matter. He is most famous for his McCoo series, a set of rainbow-coloured Highland coos one of which we have on display in the café.

Now living in Irvine with his wife and children, Brown’s work directly supports Scottish charities changing year-on-year; this year, its the National Animal Welfare Trust
