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.

Edinburgh based artist Stewart Bremner believes, “Good Design is a blend of creativity and a high attention to detail”.
His creative flair and passion for Scotland’s culture and scenery is reflected in his vibrant and engaging design.
With almost 20 years experience working across the publishing spectrum. His tools of the trade are digital – rather than pen and paper.
At Bay Attic we love Stewart’s interpretation of the Cloch Lighthouse in Gourock – our old neck of the woods and his eye-catching view of Dundee at night.
