A bit about me

I have always been an artist, I love painting, making and creating things. In 2012 I was able to take a sabbatical from work and I started to paint.

So I set up a studio.

New brushes!
New easel
Bare walls

 I exhibited some paintings in a few local outlets

In the lovely gallery at Kirkton Woodland and Heritage Group 
Now known as Made in Lochcarron

And at the wonderful Waterside Cafe

I made some cards and prints too and put them in some local outlets, and painted some pots and other decorative items to see whether I would sell anything and it went well.

So I painted more things and sold more widely, I even had a small exhibition at Portree Library.

And at the Howard Doris Centre

 I sold a few bits and bobs and more than covered my costs and had a great deal of fun and despite selling quite a lot, my walls are a lot fuller now

So this year I decided to do a little more.  I've spoken to some other outlets (more about that soon) booked some events, joined an artist collective Made in Lochcarron and I'm volunteering as a tutor at the Howard Doris Centre.  

I've painted some signs for a friend, 'Ionmhas'  means treasures in English

I've been invited to sell some of my painted pots, cards and paintings at the wonderful Patterns of Light

I was also invited to be part of the rather fabby South West Ross Arts and Eats brochure 

This is my stall at Made in Lochcarron
