2021 and Covid is still rearing its ugly head.
This year I have an exhibition at BIRCH TREE GALLERY in Edinburgh opening on 23rd June and another at AN LANNTAIR in Stornoway opens on 2nd July. I am selling original linoprint cards at EMPTY HOUSE TRADERS and SANDWICK BAY LIVING and my other cards are selling well at Anlanntair.
I am organising a new project, launching OPEN STUDIOS HEBRIDES with our first event showcasing 12 artists between Tong and Tolsta. This takes place over 2 weekends at the end of July.
I have been busy printing a new body of work which is more abstract and focusses on the textures found where sand and water meet. This has been achieved using both blind embossing and intaglio inking.
My books are an ongoing project and I have added Eco-printing to the range of techniques that I am using.
I have been doing some 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. I am looking forward to teaching evening classes again in July.
Take a look at my CARDS on the SHOP - there are some different designs based on my latest collagraphs and linoprints.
CALENDARS for 2022 are in the process of being designed.
Unfortunately, due to the restrictions needed to control the Corona virus, I am mainly having to sell prints online until the situation changes but am hoping that both of my summer exhibitions will be well received.
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.

ISLAND ART for GIVING
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 between 1st and 10th October 2020.
We raised over £2000 for the 2 charities and hope to do another exhibition in a couple of years.
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
