Dietmar Finger

Dietmar Finger studied Product Design in Germany and the UK, before working as a motorcycle- and car-designer for Honda, BMW, Opel, Saab and Volkswagen. His love for Scotland made him end his professional career as a designer and move to the Isle of Islay, where he works as an artist. He also hosts a B&B in the wee hamlet Carnduncan, called FACING WEST, which offers a peaceful, scenic and creative environment.

From Carnduncan one can cycle or drive to Machir Bay, Saligo Bay or Sanaigmore Bay within minutes. Loch Gruinart, of special interest not only for bird watchers, is only a couple of miles away. By car you will get to Port Charlotte or Bowmore in 20-30 minutes.

Dietmar's preferred media are watercolour and acrylics, but he also like to take quick visual notes in sketchbooks.
