AXOLOTL GALLERY REAPPEARS IN GLASGOW 17-19 MAY 2019

AXOLOTL GALLERY REAPPEARS IN GLASGOW 17-19 MAY 2019

I have been as quiet as is possible for a red headed Scottish chick, creating new pieces of my “Faded Stars” series.  Ive had plenty of time on my hands following a cancer operation last July and a follow up preventative op in January this year.  I’ve been selling like crazy on Ebay to raise funds and I am delighted to say that I have been accepted to the Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair at Kelvingrove Marquee on 17, 18, 19 May 2019 where I will be exhibiting under Axolotl Gallery (the gallery I ran on Dundas Street, Edinburgh a few years ago).

Im going to be posting regularly on the lead up to the event and you can follow my video’s and photos at:

September already ?????

September already ?????

Ooops I haven’t posted since February – that must mean Ive been uber busy or uber lazy – lets stick with the first one cos obviously you can’t prove the second.

Suddenly realised I hadn’t painted for a very long time so I dug out the acrylics and canvas’ and off I went.  As usual I like to mix my media using images, gloss and paint – two pieces were exhibited in the ESBAT exhibition and although they didn’t sell one was chosen to be exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy on the mound (till October so you can still see it)

I also had a significant birthday so July was mainly a drunken haze and a bit of mid life crisis surgery – got my cataract operation so I can hopefully (eventually) actually be able to see me work close up!!!

TIPTOE THROUGH THE TULIPS

At the beginning of 2015 I dutifully started my monthly revolutions – much easier than resolutions as they can be changed as I see fit!

I decided to step right out of my comfort zone and explore new mediums and ideas – namely, flower painting classes and lino cutting.  Living life on the edge as always.

I joined a 10 week class at the Edinburgh Drawing School and its the most fun I’ve ever had on a Tuesday afternoon.  2.5 hours of observing and honing my drawing skills (haven’t done that since primary school) – I loved the course so much I enrolled for a second block, this time with the intention of using the printmakers workshop to produce a series of lino cuts.  Putting wood cutting on the back burner – not literally – as I discovered a linocut takes about 3 hours, a woodcut about 3 days and it hurts my thumb!

So, heres my sketches from the first 10 weeks – where Im going with them – well stay tuned!
