I currently have an exhibition at Grinneabhat in Bragar on the west side of Lewis. This is a lovely gallery which overlooks the moorland.
My cards, prints and calendars are available at EMPTY HOUSE TRADERS , SANDWICK BAY LIVING, AN LANNTAIR in Stornoway, TAIGH CHEARSABHAIG in North Uist, ZERO WASTE Moreton in Devon and at GINGKO GALLERY in Orkney. You can also buy them directly from me by heading to the SHOP page
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 and also individual and small group sessions in my studio.
A book on printmaking is on the cards. It will be looking at experimenting with different printmaking methods and will hopefully inspire more experienced printmakers too. WATCH THIS SPACE!
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 are now available.
Unframed collagraphs and mixed media artworks 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.
OPEN STUDIOS HEBRIDES 2023
OPEN STUDIOS HEBRIDES took place over the last 2 weekends in July 2022 involving 40 artists and makers around the Isle of Lewis. It was a great success and we are busy planning for OSH 2023.

ISLAND ART for GIVING
Another fundraising exhibition is scheduled for 2023
I will be contacting our Island artists in the Autumn for donations of postcard sized original artwork. Talla na Mara Gallery will again host the exhibition in June next year.
There will also be an online gallery of the art work so it is accessible to all.
