If you follow this blog, you might have noticed that I’ve been absent for a while. I don’t think anyone would argue that I’m just not that good at blogging! However, I am trying to share my artist journey, so I’ll keep at it for a while.
This year has been a very interesting one so far. After Aileen, Mairi and I wound up the gallery, Aileen and I held our first joint exhibition at the Steadings, Balmacara Square. It was my first big body of work after leaving the gallery and many of the unsold pieces are available at The Stick Factory gallery in Edinburgh. In October I started a Botanical Art course with Edinburgh Botanic Gardens which I completed in March and then I started working on my exhibition at Inverewe. Once that exhibition was hung, I began working towards my most recent exhibition, a joint one, with Aileen once again and, this time, with watercolourist, Steven Proudfoot at An Talla Dearg.
The exhibitions and the courses are over now. I have a good sized body of work of more than 40 paintings and a selection of drawings and sketches. I’ve been thinking what to do next. There are some other exhibitions coming up and I will be adding some smaller works to my Etsy shop, but also have other plans.
I promise I’ll try and keep you posted on what they are.
