“As a scene from my constituency the image on this year’s card by Ann Vastano had a particular significance. It is a stunning painting and I am delighted that it has raised a fantastic £7,000 which will be donated to support children’s causes in the North-east as well as Cairngorm Mountain Rescue.

“Since 2007, the trust I established in my late mothers name has supported 239 youth and community organisations and I am delighted that groups, from girl guiding to disability or befriending schemes, will continue to benefit.

“Ann Vastano is best known for her Highland landscape painting and so it is entirely fitting that Cairngorm Mountain Rescue, who provide a vital lifeline service, are also to benefit from the auction.” Alex Salmond

Nicola Sturgeon has used my painting Storms made us Stronger for a back drop in her new First Ministers Office.

Work now showing at the newly opened 1896 Gallery, Boat of Garten.

Triptych arrives framed and ready to hang in the Cairngorm Brewery's new acquisition - The Winking Owl, Aviemore.

Solo exhibition at the Scottish Parliament, May 2014

First Minister of Scotland Alex Salmond said: “The Cairngorms are a jewel in Scotland’s crown and I am delighted that these stunning works by Ann Vastano, celebrating ten years of the National Park, are to be exhibited in the Scottish Parliament. These paintings brilliantly capture the timeless natural beauty of the area but, also, colourfully depict rural life and the rich cultural heritage of the Highlands. It is fitting that some of the National Park’s most outstanding landmarks have been used to celebrate the landmark anniversary.”
