Art in The Old Haa, Burravoe, Yell, Shetland

Art in The Old Haa, Burravoe, Yell, Shetland   It’s been a few weeks since I last posted, I hope you’re all having a lovely summer so far? Summer is traditionally a quiet time for me, art wise, due to being a busy time for the chalets.   However, we’ve been busy nonetheless. In May [...]

Where is the best beaches in Shetland for beach combing?

Beachcombing - Challister, Whalsay   My favourite hobby, if you hadn’t guessed already, is beachcombing.   This probably started when I was a child, at “the Bug”, the local name for the small beach just below our family home at Challister, in Whalsay, where I grew up. It’s a special beach to me.   On [...]

I got some exciting news recently with the offer of a brilliant opportunity from Northlink ferries: I have been selected to have my artwork displayed onboard one of their ferries! The Hrossey is one of two passenger ships which sails between Shetland, [...]

Beachcombing – Evie, Orkney

Beachcombing - Evie, Orkney Beachcombing is one of my favourite pastimes; you never know what you will find. While on a beach combing trip to Orkney recently I decided to go to explore a new spot. I came across the beach of Evie, which is a large sandy beach. It had a corrugated pattern in [...]

Re-cycling

So much of life today is designed to be disposable. As someone who regularly visits the coast and beaches, the evidence for this throwaway society is sadly often to see. I feel it is really important to re-cycle where possible. I do this in my daily life and try to reduce the amount of waste [...]

Ninian, Lerwick, Shetland

Last year, Joanna Hunter of Ninian - possibly the best gift shop in Lerwick- offered to try selling some of my painted wood boards. I was pleasantly surprised by how well these sold throughout the summer, especially the chunky re-cycled scaffolding boards. There will be more of these in the shop soon, including new variations [...]

Crafts at Scotland’s Trade Fair – Glasgow 2017

As I grow as an artist and develop work one question which is never far from my mind is how to go about selling work. Without a physical shop space, selling your pieces to the public can be difficult - lots of folk like to see work "in real life" before they buy, and there [...]

The mystery of the glass – Scalloway

Following the wild storms we had over christmas I have been able to get out and see what treasures the wild seas have thrown up! The outdoors provides a huge amount of materials and inspiration for my work, and I love observing the changes in the seasons and local habitats. Whenever possible I take my [...]
