Primarily a printmaker, I apply my designs to textile and book forms. An increasing awareness of my carbon footprint as an artist has recently encouraged me to explore the possibilities of creating my own papers, printing inks, pigments and brushes using locally foraged resources.
What to expect: Alongside my artwork, printing presses and studio equipment, visitors can expect to see my homemade artist toolkit and the processes used to create it. Homemade materials will be displayed alongside my original materials and visitors will be encouraged to try them.
Directions: Arriving in Wigtown on the A714 from Newton Stewart, turn right at the T-Junction onto North Main Street. Craigard is the second door on the right, next to the Engravers.
Accessibility: There are two steps into my studio. Once in, everything is all on a single level with wide doorways suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs.
Recommendation: The Wigtown Emporium. A treasure trove of vintage curios and objects
