Cohen – Art
Born in 1978 and originally from Saskatchewan, Canada, Cohen has travelled extensively and draws inspiration for her work wherever she goes. Since 2011, she has resided in Glasgow, Scotland and consequently the beautiful landscapes of Scotland have become the focus of her recent work, with an emphasis on the sky, the mountains, trees and water. https://cohen-art.com

Monika Alff & Daphne Hamilton
Monika creates collages on paper, canvas and on home accessories. Her images are informed by the surreal and semi-abstract. She loves strong colours and gets inspiration from her natural surroundings.
Daphne works a lot with alcohol inks and uses these on a variety of supports including tiles. Her images contain gentle humour and often describe Scottish situations without using clichés. https://m.facebook.com/MAexperimentalArt

Kayleigh McCallum Art and Illustration
I love creating illustrative artworks using oils and inks, mainly of animals and people. Bold colours and curious expressions feature a lot in my work! I paint from my studio in the east end of Glasgow and all of my prints are made in Glasgow too.
I gave up my job in advertising 4 years ago to follow my passion for creating art. I love hearing where everyone hangs their prints and originals in their house! www.kayleighmccallum.com

Original Oil Landscape Painting.
The work features many oil pleinair paintings, capturing the impressions of light and atmosphere. Selected works are an exploration into Myth, and storytelling. By expanding upon the stories of the land, folklore, legend and personal experience unfold to invite your eye into the depths of your soul.
As an Artist I am captivated by the constant communication we have with our environment. How we may sing and be sung by the very bittersweet Earth, we walk along. Creating awareness and progress understanding.
