exuberant artworks & inspiring art workshops
Colourful and lively paintings on paper, canvas and wood. I often combine acrylic paint with other media and techniques such as ink, charcoal, pastel. collage and printing.
Bold yet sensitive ink drawing and watermedia. I like to combine free flowing ink drawing with loose colour washes of watercolour or liquid acrylic paint.
Non-traditional watercolour. I often work on photographic paper which enhances the luminosity of the paint. Drawing with a stick creates a freedom of line.
Your turn to get creative. I will demonstrate my techniques and provide materials for you to experiment with in a relaxed and inspiring environment.
Elspeth J Mackenzie
I am a Scottish visual artist and creative inspirer based in Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland. I love colour and texture and drawing and use various materials and techniques to capture the essence of my subject matter. I believe everyone should be given the opportunity to be creative and I get great pleasure organising and leading art workshops for all ages and abilities. I have over ten years experience in this field - including working with people with long term health conditions, such as stroke, dementia, chronic pain and MS.
