Less than two weeks to go until the start of Perthshire Open Studios 2017! This year I’m going to open my Kettins studio to the public, together with fellow artist Aileen M Stackhouse. Aileen shows work based on her ongoing research project into the history, geology and ecology of the River Ericht. I show recent linoprints and still life paintings together with new drawings and painted recycled furniture.
During the Open Studio days Aileen and I will be doing demonstrations of drawing and linoprinting.
The full programme of Perthshire Open Studios 2017 is listed in the excellent event brochure, available in many shops, museums, libraries, cafés all over Perthshire and Kinross-shire. You can also find it online.

I am grateful to renowned artist Frances Law who invited me to add a colourful accent to Ruthven Community Hall, newly refurbished for this year’s Ruthven Music Festival on the weekend of June 9 – 11. The concert audience could see paintings by Frances Law, Jonathan Hood and myself on the walls of the lovely intimate venue, at one time the village church of Ruthven in Angus.

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.
The Barn Gallery at The Bield houses this year’s Showcase Exhibition for Perthshire Open Studios. It includes work of many of the artists and makers participating in the open studio days. One of my paintings is on display there.
