Hazel Ferrie



These charming paintings are by Hazel Ferrie, of Stanley, Perthshire, who recently asked me to digitise and print them, as well as printing some other images for which the originals were not available but which had been photographed. That’s not ideal but as long as the photographs are good it’s perfectly doable. What helped in this case is that there were previously made prints that I could use for colour matching. Hazel was good enough to give me a great testimonial for this job.

Kim Anne Nisbet

Just completed a biggish job for Kim Anne Nisbet, making prints from 12 original acrylic paintings. These are among the most vibrant works I’ve copied, presenting some technical challenges, but I learned from it and very much enjoyed having them in the shop. I won’t show all 12 here, just my favourites.

Drawings by Fiona Campbell

Local artist Fiona Campbell picked up her prints yesterday and seems quite pleased with them. They’re from two graphite drawings—hope I’m not making too many assumptions when I say drawing really does seem to be her thing. See for yourself—



Fiona now has an Etsy Shop where you can buy these prints among other things.

New works by Eileen Gardner

A week or two ago I had the pleasure of photographing and printing three new works by Eileen Gardner, large pastels, like most of those I’ve done for her.

She and her husband Tom, who frames her work and generally assists her, had a good North Fife Open Studios event, selling both prints and originals—so much so that they’re already back asking for more prints.

The new ones are Early Morning Light, The Singing Sea, and Woodland Stream. Try to guess which is which!
