Ailsa lives in the tiny coastal village of Carsethorn and is inspired by the animals and landscape surrounding her. From the studio at the top of her house she observes the coming and goings of village life. Her art tries to capture the simple pleasures in life and the secret conversations between the animal species.
“As a response to the Covid -19 Pandemic I created a colouring in page on my website- there are a selection of colouring in images for children and adults which are free to download and print at home. I am also offering free gift wrapping and the option of parcels being dispatched direct to recipient.”
Ailsa’s first jigsaw published by Ravensburger was nominated this month as one of the 9 Best Jigsaws for Adults and Children during a Lockdown by The Independent. In 2018 her RSPB Year Calendar was voted best Charity Calendar of the year. In 2017 she was listed as one of 25 top UK are brands. Ailsa has exhibited widely in the U.K. and at the Royal Glasgow Institute and Paisley Art Institute. Her art is licensed and sold worldwide on an increasing range of gift ware.
