A Year in Pictures!

Happy New Year!  Big thanks and love to everyone who has supported me and my creative journey with Claremont Studio over the past year!

As I look back 2017 really was quite a year!  So many wonderful creative highlights starting with my exhibition at Whats Your Story? at Seventeen, the launch of my new candle range, exhibiting at the Royal Scottish Academy, Candle Collaborations and Stockists, developing my brand, being a featured artist for the wonderful Miss Mustard Seeds Milk Paint and taking part in { b o t a n i c a } and Flock, Etsy and HAAN Contemporary Craft and Design Markets with some of the best people and makers I know!  Its lovely to be a part of such a supportive, talented and flourishing creative community here in the north east and making new friends further afield!

And for 2018?  More illustration, painting, design, candle making and collaborations! Lots of exciting projects planned already and looking forward to sharing it all with you!

Here is some highlights from my year!

A Fly Cup & A Blether about ‘What’s Your Story?’ with Tracey Johnston

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Join Aberdeen based artist Tracey Johnston for a Fly Cup and a Blether about her exhibition ‘What’s Your Story?’.
Hear about the stories behind the illustrations. Who was Margaret Penny and Why was she the first Scottish Petticoat Whaler? and Why were the women of the Aberdeen Herring Fleet so important?
Members of the public are invited to share their cultural reminiscences of the Granite City and be a part of this exhibition by growing a ‘Memory Wall’. Why Aberdeen? What makes us stay? What makes us leave? And what makes us come home?

Tweet your reminiscences to @ClaremontG or Email claremontgallery@aol.co.uk

The exhibition runs until Friday 3rd Febuary.
Part of Seventeen Commissions

If you are interested in purchasing any of the scarves or illustrations from the exhibition please contact
Tracey directly at claremontgallery@aol.co.uk

A selection of limited edition prints taken from the original illustrations are also available and can be viewed at http://www.claremontstudio.bigcartel.com
