Postcards from Edinburgh 

My new paintings on exhibition in Gallery Two are reflections on peoples interactions with Edinburgh. The paintings are based on observation and photographs and have been created to reflect on romance, commerce, exercise, festivals and entertainment. I wanted the paintings to be playful, fun, affectionate reflections of Edinburgh and its residents and visitors. 

To go alongside the exhibition, I have designed and printed postcards of the paintings on display. I then asked friends and colleagues to use the postcard I chose for them, to write on it as if they were posting it to someone. What they wrote was entirely their choice, they were not even required to respond directly to the chosen postcard image. You will be able to see their responses in the exhibition and they will also feature in a small self-published catalogue that I am designing.
