The Yellow Door

I'm a bit late blogging about my recent exhibition at The Yellow Door, but I wanted to share a few photos from the Private View, and to tell you a little bit about this special place in Dumfries where I have been volunteering for the last few months.

The Yellow Door was launched as a permanent shop and gallery in April 2014 for a group of artists, designers, makers and writers from Dumfries and the surrounding area to display and sell their work. The new space accommodates a vibrant programme of exhibitions, and small creative and literary workshops and events.

The Gallery showcases an excellent selection of paintings, sculpture, ceramics, hand-made prints, writing, photography, illustrations, crafts, antiques, fine art and the most fabulous handmade hats!

Email to be added to their mailing list, or sign up to the newsletter on the facebook page here to stay up to date with what's happening and be invited along to some super events behind The Yellow Door.

Excited to share news that a book entitled 'A Scion of Heroes' is about to be published on 6 March 2015. Author Stuart James McCulloch very kindly commissioned me to design the front cover for the book and this has to be one of the most interesting and satisfying commissions I've received so far. 

The new book is all about the life of Captain James Murray and the interesting story motivated and inspired me to create the cover below.

For more information about the book and how to order copies through the Author, please see below...
