Chance to help Napier University student

We just received the following message from a local student:

I am a third year Croatian photography student at Edinburgh Napier University. I am doing a project called “Fitting into the background” and have chosen painters as my subject matter. I would like to take a picture of a painter in his/her studio, surrounded by all the tools of the trade and artwork.
I kindly ask you to provide me with the names of the artists that are currently using your studios so I can get to them in order to see who would be happy to help me with this project.

If you can help, please email Marina – marina.joncic@gmail.com – directly.
