Once the Coronavirus lockdown ended, I was able to make a further two visits to the site, in August, and September 2020 to conclude the residency. I created a number of artworks on site and have filmed several of these being created in-situ. These can be seen in the Rahoy Hills Residency playlist of my ArtLearn Studio You Tube channel. They can be viewed HERE. Resulting work – with a percentage of funds from sales going to support the work of the Scottish Wildlife Trust ranger will be available for viewing on this website.
Check out my work in the window J&G Innes – the fabulous bookshop, art store, gallery and more in historic St Andrews, Fife. Lots of pieces for sale.
Many thanks to Laura Coventry at D.C. Thomson Media, Glasgow for the great two page article and front page profiling my work, and some of the events I’ve coming up:
‘Meet the Artist, Watch & Try’ will be my involvement in this day to celebrate the birthday, and life of Beatrice Sharp, prominent member the family who were the past inhabitants of this wonderful stately home during Edwardian times. I’ll be working from floral still lifes (Beatrice had a passion for all things floral), showing the processes involved in creating a painting, as part of a day involving not only art, but live period music, guided tours of the mansion, and activities for all ages. 11am-4pm Saturday 29th February. I will also have an exhibition of paintings in the Conservatory Cafe where you can view (and buy!) my work while enjoying coffee and cake. What a full-on day!
Here’s their flyer:
Next week, I’ll be moving into my fantastic new studio space at The Steeple, in Newburgh, north Fife, which will be another base from where I’ll soon be widening my range of classes. As it’ll be my working studio, you may also be able to see one of my paintings in progress when you come along. Also, if you want like to suggest a particular style or technique you’d like to learn (day, evening or weekend) just let me know, and I’ll look at putting together a new class. I’ll be in touch soon with an update!
The exhibition at Sproson Gallery, South Street, St Andrews, is now open, and will run until 31st March. Hope you can make it along there, then let me know what you think of my new watercolour paintings of St Andrews. There’s one in the front window and another six inside (you can see my paintings on this page: https://sprosongallery.com/collections/all?page=5).
Great to see you all at the Hill of Tarvit Christmas Fayre. This wonderful venue in Fife was home to twenty three artists and makers for the weekend – of which I was one! It was great to be a part of the event – many thanks to Geraldine for the superb organisation, and all the staff for their support.
