Dundee Art Fair 24th – 26th May 2019

I’m very excited to be preparing for the first ever art fair to be held in Dundee and also the first ever for me! I have lots of new collaged drawings finished and beautifully framed ready for my stand and I’ve also been printing like a little fiend at the DCA Print workshop. I’ve had fun experimenting with a new muted colour palette for my prints and I’ll have some of these hand made prints

Christmas Market Dundee

My persistence has paid off! I’ve been really fortunate and feel privileged to have a space at the Ethical Trade Christmas Market in the City Square. My drawings are on display on the very streets that inspired them! I have my trike “vintaged up” with an old Fortnum & Mason basket in the centre of my stall.

I think I hear my name and suddenly I recognise my friend Hugo. He’s calling me by his pet Barcelona name for me “Linditta!” Ha! Ha! No wonder it took me a while to recognise he was calling me. He’s very affectionate towards me and kisses my

An invitation to display my drawings in a Barcelona Café

The owner of my favourite coffee shop is so pleased to see me return to draw in her cafe! She loves my drawings and asks to take a look. I ask her if she would like to have the one she likes? She is astonished, and probably waiting for me to name an exorbitant price….” No, its is for you!” I tell her and suddenly she’s leaping around the coffee shop laughing with glee to
