Autumn and Winter Hare…

I’ve been an absentee blogger again – but am resolved to add posts more regularly! I have not been idle and have had the paint brushes out…

Winter Hare

Shop Open!

The Market Street Collective Shop opened in mid April – we sell the work of 30 local artists and crafts people, from ceramics to textiles and paintings to jewellery. Three of us run the shop, please take a look at our wares – if you see anything you like just email me and I can send you a link to the maker, they are a talented bunch….

The Gallery Shop

Yummy cards..

You can find the shop on Market Street in Ullapool and the fabulous An Talla Solais gallery – right next to the Village Hall! So if you are in the NW Highlands you know where to come for quality fine arts and crafts.

Spent the afternoon at An Talla Solais in Ullapool yesterday – doing a dry point engraving class, I had great fun with really good company & a great teacher – but most importantly I renewed my interest in printing…

I  have always returned to mono prints – but now I think I will keep going with the engraving, there are always new techniques to learn and products to use….


 It’s a long time since I was an art student, and I tend to do what I’m comfortable with…….so my new moto is to start learning, keep experimenting, & keep going!

For info on great courses look at –
