Latest Art!

This summer I’ve been following my joy and embracing the chaos, and that has led me to making detailed and decorative drawings taking inspiration from celtic art, medieval manuscript illustration and mandala and geometric design.

My favourite of these drawings I’ve made into screen prints with gold leaf, and I’ve begun a range of small prints and greetings cards with illuminated letters.


In person workshops with the Arienas Collective

Learn to print or paint with me in a small home setting, in Edinburgh’s beautiful New Town.

I’ve got a number of options for learning to screen print, with a focus on you being able to take what you’ve learnt and use it in your own home or studio. 

I also have a beautiful vintage tabletop letterpress, and have some really fun options for exploring making your own cards and stationery using metal type.

Make your booking through the Arienas Collective, and check their website for upcoming dates.
