“ Alastair's mastery of color, composition, and especially light are astounding. Still, these components all come together so seamlessly that I forget to examine artistic elements and just soak in the mesmerising final product. To top it all off, in discussing the commission, Alastair collaborated with me in a way that was both accessible and elevating to my untrained eye. A remarkable combination of skill and character!"
Grant Emery
