    This year I'm delighted to be taking part in the Upland Made Visual Art and Craft Fair. The fair will take place on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November at Easterbrook Hall in Dumfries.

    This year I am one of 34 exhibitors taking part selling everything from paintings, prints and pottery to jewellery, furniture and clothing. As well as original Ailsa Black paintings and hand signed prints I will have calendars and Xmas cards for sale.

  2. Christmas Exhibitions

    Posted on

    Well winter is definately with us now and the hills surrounding me have a lovely dusting of the white stuff. I have been busy painting and driving up and down the country delivering paintings to galleries in time for Christmas. Galleries showing my work are Stirling Art in Stirling, Annan Gallery in Glasgow, Cookhouse and Cedar Galleries in the Lake District and Acorn Gallery in Yorkshire.

    I quite often have people asking me where they can buy my paintings so to make it easier I have added an originals section to my website. If you click on it you will see which galleries have which paintings. They are all happy to ship work, so if there is one you are particulary interested in, please do contact them and have a chat.  I still have a few snowscenes and suprise commissions to finish for Christmas so I'll get back to painting! Here is a sneek peek at some of my new paintings below...have a wonderful winter!
