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.
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 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).
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.
Lots of gorgeous new things to come and see over the Summer!
