Inception Art Show

I had a wonderful weekend at Dalkeith Country Palace last weekend. It was a collection of over thirty of the best contemporary British artists curated by the estate of the Duke of Bucchleuch. He himself bought one of my Breath Series drawings last year. Another of my pieces made it into the family this year, what an honour!

I love participating in the show and am hoping to be invited back in September.

The Wonders of Composition and Artist’s Talk

It’s more than just an art fair — BAF organise many activities around the event. Earlier this year I recorded a workshop on composition for BAF and an artist’s talk. It is all on their website for free, have a look at that and the other online workshops and events they have put together for us.

A previous winner of the BAF Best Exhibitor Stand prize, Gill will take you through the basics of the classical composition techniques that she uses in her own stunning work.”

Other news …

Look out for details of work accepted into the Royal Scottish Academy Annual Exhibition and (potentially) the Aberdeen Artist’s Society Annual Exhibition. I have been pre-selected for both!

The next exhibition is Inception Art Show, Friday 6 May – Sunday 8 May. Inception art show returns to Dalkeith Country Park this May. An impressive roll-call of respected sculptors, artists, photographers and painters will be exhibiting within Dalkeith Palace. Then closely followed by Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair, Friday 27 May – Sunday 29 May. Held in a marquee in the grounds of the impressive Kelvingrove Art Gallery, it is full of original, affordable and inspiring art.

Road Trip

Road Trip is a collaborative artwork which has journeyed around Scotland connecting artists and communities during our year of Covid. I am one of the SSA Sattelite Associates for the Scottish Borders and, as such, began this project. The painting is being raffled to support the Sattelite Programme.
