New work includes - monoprinting, relief printing, blind embossing, intaglio inking and print collages.
My hand-made books are an ongoing project and I have added Eco-printing to the range of techniques that I am using for the covers.
Teaching printmaking is a passion and I have been doing evening classes and online workshops at An Lanntair, monthly workshops in Lews Castle grounds, workshops with outreach groups and also individual and small group sessions in my studio by appointment.
A book on printmaking is in progress. It will be looking at experimental printmaking and will hopefully inspire both beginners and experienced printmakers alike. WATCH THIS SPACE!
ISLAND ART FOR GIVING
In 2023 I organised a second fundraising art event at TALLA NA MARA gallery - HARRIS which took place in the first week of June and online. Local artists donated postcard sized original art to be sold in aid of 2 worthy charities.

OPEN STUDIOS HEBRIDES 2023
OPEN STUDIOS HEBRIDES 2023 involved artists and makers around the Isle of Lewis. This is our third year and it has been a great way for people to meet the artists, find out about their work and treat themselves to a piece of original Island Art.
The recent exhibition for our member artists at AN LANNTAIR was a great success and highlighted the wonderful range of artwork produced by artists and makers on the Isle of Lewis.
The dates for OPEN STUDIOS HEBRIDES 2024 are 25,26,27 July and 1,2,3 August for the art trails on the Isle of Lewis and we plan to extend it to the Isle of Harris with an additional weekend 8,9,10 August.
