Janet McCrorie produces the most vibrant, colourful and energetic art. She captures the essence of Scottish Country Dance in her eye-catching work.
“I live in East Lothian and my working life has revolved around teaching and creating arts and crafts. I have studied painting with the Open College of the Arts and at Leith School of Art and have had two excellent mentors in Jacqueline Watt and Damian Callan.
I paint Scottish dancers using mixed media, plotting out the familiar shapes by scraping and scratching vibrant colours across the painting, meeting the challenge of capturing the look of the tartan and the movement and exuberance of the dance.
I work from photographs, sketches and from life, attending Highland Dancing competitions, Scottish Country Dancing events and Ceilidhs all over Scotland. My aim is to make the viewer smile and to induce a sense of nostalgia while putting a modern twist on the spectacle of these ancient traditional dances.
My paintings have been used to illustrate the Royal Scottish Country Dancing Society’s Annual Review for 2011.”

Really excited about these NEW! little mounted prints. They won’t break the bank, look great on your wall or to give as a gift. I’m so chuffed with them that I’ve most likely posted this post far to soon – as we haven’t got them all online yet (Cheeky I know!).
These little gems of a mounted print come sealed inside a cello bag with an artist biography sheet. They are digitally printed and have a double-thick mount in an off white colour surround. They look and feel brilliant. The mounts are high quality conservation board and just add that wow! to the small prints.
What’s also so great about these little guys is that they fit into a standard 10″ x 10″ frame or 10″ x 8″ frame.
They are great to give as a gift and fit easily into your suitcase to take as a souvenir to family and friends at a wedding or abroad.

Chris spent his early years in Africa and on returning to Aberdeen attended Robert Gordon’s School. On leaving school Chris spent two years at Aberdeen College of Commerce studying graphic design. He then went to Grays School of Art and studied sculpture and fine art for four years. He has worked as a professional artist since 1983.
Chris is a keen fisherman and outdoor sportsman and brings this passion to his art. He specialises in the area of field sports and game fishing – in particular salmon fishing. His very impressive attention to detail, factual representation and fine workmanship is based on his keen personal interest in all of that which he paints. His paintings capture a fleeting moment in nature, the stag on the hill, the salmon in the pool, the bird on the wing and all of the landscape or environment done to the same exacting standard.
He sells his work extensively through gallery exhibitions as well as individual commissions. He has an impressive list of patrons including multi-corporate businesses and British peerage. His work can often be seen gracing the covers of well known sporting magazines.

A Different Persprctive by Scott Naismith
Scott’s ethereal depictions of the Scottish Landscape are built on themes of optimism and hope. He refers to his paintings as ‘atmospheric abstractions’ which are influenced by particle physics. They question the very construction and binding particles, blurring the lines between solid, liquid and gas.
