2019

 

 2019 was a very busy year for me - 

 I re-branded as HARBOUR PRINT, had a great season at MORVEN Gallery here on Lewis and sold my cards and prints at several Christmas craft events.

My cards were sold via Anlanntair and The Blue Lobster in Stornoway, Morven Gallery, Lael Gallery, Ullapool, The Courtyard Theatre in Hereford and Gather in Moretonhampstead, Devon.

Sales of cards, calendars and prints via my website began to take-off and I had some great feedback from customers.

I taught printmaking and mixed media evening classes at Anlanntair and met some lovely new folk who are hopefully going to carry on doing printmaking and artwork now they have learned the basics.

Taking part in the 'Archaeology and Printmaking' course in Orkney with Charles Shearer was a wonderful experience, in spite of the dreadful weather and has provided some new ideas for future printmaking.

WHAT'S NEW?

2020

This year began well after a wonderful family Christmas - our first here on the island.

I have been teaching an 'Introduction to Printmaking' course at Anlanntair this term with a great group of students and have given some 1:1 workshops here in my studio for friends.

 

New cards are ready for the season and there will be some different designs based on my latest collagraphs and linoprints.

Unfortunately, due to the restrictions needed to control the Corona virus, the anticipated exhibition at the Birch Tree Gallery in Edinburgh will no longer take place and I am only able to sell online until the situation changes.

Check out the prints and cards available for sale in the SHOP section of this site and get in touch via the CONTACTS page for purchasing details. 

I hope to be joining Deb Wing for Cowal Open Studios later in the year, all being well,  which will be a great opportunity to show my work on the mainland.

ISLAND ART for GIVING

I am organising a fundraising art exhibition with the West Harris Trust to support Bethesda Hospice and the Beach Access fund. We are asking local artists to donate a postcard-sized piece of original artwork or a photograph which will be mounted and then exhibited on an online gallery where interested people can view the work. All pictures will be sold at the same affordable price which will make it possible to buy a small original piece of work and, at the same time, contribute to very worthwhile charities.

We had planned to hold an exhibition of this work at Talla na Mara in June but cannot yet confirm this due to the current restrictions. The deadline for artists to submit their work is 30th April.
