The Colmcille Legacy Award

Duais Dìleab Chaluim Chille / The Colmcille Legacy Award is a national arts and heritage award scheme created in partnership with CHArts, Argyll & Isles and Bòrd na Gàidhlig to commemorate the life and cultural legacy of St Columba throughout the year of Colmcille 1500.

I am one of 9 artists so far awarded and it has been a fantastic journey. It gave me the chance for the work I have been exploring over the past few years to come to life. As many of you know I have a deep love of our landscape and all that I find in it. Inspired by the pilgrim trail of Argyll. Its nature, history and art heritage. This award gave me the opportunity to draw it all together and create something new in the process. You can see the work of awarded artists here.

I also had the chance to see my work projected onto McCaig’s Tower recently. In an event organized by CHArts, Argyll. It was a great way to see the work in a different way. Inspiration came from the stone carvings in the area. Seeing the images cast back onto stone at such a scale was well worth braving the midgie-bites and rain.



Pet Portrait Mirrors

 Are you looking for something special? How about a Pet portrait mirror featuring your pet? These are one-offs, original paintings on 10 x 10in wooden frame mirrors.

The examples below have now been re-homed with the pet’s own parents/staff. Featuring Czesar and T.A.R.D.I.S, Parsley by moonlight, Fleurie & McCaig’s Tower, Toby & Iris in the daisies, Teddy the Malmut and last but not least, Yogi and his bear. I am happy to paint other pets & animals, Dogs, Horses, Rats, Unicorns, whatever takes your fancy. 

It`s not just animals, just about anything you can think of can be painted so long as I can fit it within the mirror frame. Get in touch if you would like to find out more. I have a limited amount of spaces so orders will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. Thank you B.V x
