 2022 and sadly Covid is still rearing its ugly head. Planning is difficult but I have an exhibition at Talla na Mara coming up in October and another at Grinneabhat  in November.
My original linoprint cards, small prints and linoprint notebooks are available at EMPTY HOUSE TRADERS and cards at SANDWICK BAY LIVING.  Cards  from original artwork are selling well at Anlanntair in Stornoway, Taigh Chearsabhagh in North Uist , Zero Waste Moreton in Devon and at Ginkgo Gallery in Orkney.

Following the first trial OPEN STUDIOS HEBRIDES last year, I am organising a larger scale event over the last 2 weekends in July 2022 involving artists and makers around the Isle of Lewis 

I am keeping busy printing new work which is quite experimental using both blind embossing and intaglio inking.

My hand-made books are an ongoing project and I have added Eco-printing to the range of techniques that I am using.

I have continued doing online teaching for An Lanntair which has been an interesting development. Teaching lino-printing via Zoom has been fun and very different from face to face workshops. Printmaking evening and day classes have started again and I am holding workshops in my studio by appointment.

Another new project is a book on printmaking which I am hoping to put together over the coming year, It will be essentially for beginners but will hopefully inspire more experienced printmakers too. WATCH THIS SPACE!

WHAT'S NEW?

2022

Take a look at my CARDS on the SHOP pages - there are some new  designs based on my latest collagraphs and mixed media work.

 

CALENDARS for 2023 will soon be available.

Unfamed collagraphs are available, so go to SHOP and look at what stock I currently have. I will be adding new work as I produce them. 

Check out my small HAND-MADE BOOKS on the SHOP page. I can also take commissions for books with a theme of your choice or specific words and illustrations.

UPDATE  

This fundraising art exhibition in liaison with the West Harris Trust to support Bethesda Hospice and the Beach Access fund

was held at Talla na Mara Gallery in 2020.

We raised over £2000 for the 2 charities and another fundraising exhibition is scheduled for 2023

An amazing number of of wonderful contributions were received and I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to every artist who has donated work
