The Perthshire Creates Designers and Makers exhibition

My latest series of monochrome linoprints will be on display in this group exhibition at Perth Museum & Art Gallery. Work from over twenty creatives represents the contemporary nature of artwork currently being inspired and developed within the area. The series of linoprints is based on the museum’s collection of photos of lost buildings of Perth. The atmosphere and the old traditional architectural details captured in these images appeal to me and I have translated the mood in these old photographs through the medium of linocutting, applying my style of transforming through condensing and accentuating.

Perthshire Open Studios 2016

The exhibition of artwork and crafts in Spittalfield, Perth & Kinross was a resounding success. In early September our group SEVEN welcomed over 400 visitors to the charming village hall. Paintings, linoprints, bronze sculptures, ceramics, hand turned wooden bowls, pebble/driftwood pictures and fragrant organic beauty products garnered admiring comments, sales were made and commissions placed. We put a lot of time and energy into this event – interesting conversations and the satisfied faces of our visitors made it all worthwhile.

Candlelight Dinner

Another one of my paintings prepared for Perthshire Open Studios 2016. It is a still life, called Candlelight Dinner. I don’t place items for a still life in front of me when I paint, I remember or invent them and arrange them so that they tell a story. The viewer is invited to find their own stories when looking at the image.
