Artspace2Let is a not for profit organisation dedicated to exhibiting new and emerging artists' work in and around Edinburgh.

We know what it's like trying to get a foot on the art-career ladder, so we keep commission charges low, assist with hanging work and help artists to make connections that will hopefully help them to develop a supportive and informed network of contacts - as well as hopefully finding buyers.

I live in Central Scotland and had never tried to paint until I visited Kew Gardens last summer and saw a selection of botanical paintings by Rory McEwen. For me, he somehow captured the beauty of very simple things that we take so much for granted. I therefore started a beginner’s botanical course at The Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh. My paintings are not "botanical" in the true sense but more of an impression of how I perceive them to be; my objective is simply to make them resemble what they really are and can be in real life, whether that be dead, alive or decaying. My other interests are varied but have always included nature and wildlife, partly thanks to my late Father who was brought up in the countryside and who taught me so many things about it.
