Our Summer 2015 Intake of New Artists & Crafters

Twice a year, in January and July, we have the pleasure of welcoming new artists and crafters into Janet & John. Sometimes it’s just one, depending on space, but this summer we’re delighted to be introducing three!  Now they’ve all arrived instore, we thought it would be good to share a little bit more about each one.

One of three of Louise’s large prints, currently on sale in our shop.

Louise Scott is a Glasgow-based artist, specialising in copper plate etchings and marine life images. She creates her copper plate etchings using a sewing needle and a magnifying glass. Her inspiration comes from the natural world and the animals that inhabit earth, air and water.  We are delighted to be stocking a small number of her prints, together with a larger variety of her cards and coasters.

Chris produces a whole range of Breaking Bad themed work, among others.

Chris Masson is a graphic designer based in Cumbernauld.  Chris specialises in comic illustrations, pyrography (the art of burning pictures on to wood) and cut-away wood pictures.  His work features a range of popular characters from comic books, film and children’s literature.  We now stock some of his original artwork and prints in the browser opposite our door, plus a range of his pyrography and other wood items on an adjacent shelf (pictures, rulers, brooches/badges and cuff links).

QueenieBrown's handmade notebooks, featuring the same illustrations as her prints.

QueenieBrowne produces a range of wildlife themed work from her Glasgow home.  These include brooches, handmade notebooks, prints and adorably cute sewn lavender animals (made using tweeds and tartans).   We also plan to stock her cards at a later date.

  1. Hello there – i see that your next intake is January – I was wondering at what point to contact you to ask you to look at our pottery and driftwood crafts?

    • Janet Turner says:

      Hello Michaela. Thank you for your enquiry. Please contact us via email (see contact page) in early December with some images of your work. Alternatively, if you are a Facebook user, you can use their messaging system. If there is likely to be an opening for either craft, we will invite you to come in to the shop to show us your work later that month. Decisions are made between Christmas and New Year and any new artists/crafters will join us mid-January, after our January sales. There is no certainty that there will be space – it largely depends if any current contributors are leaving us at that time.
