Orkney offers an endless source of inspiration for my painitng with its unique  landscape, spectacular coastline and seaviews, ever changing weather,  long traditions of farming and fishing and a rich history stretching back over 5000 years!  I try to capture a bit of this in my work and hope to portray how I feel about Orkney through my painting. 

Toumal is an old Orkney word from the days when crofts shared common grazing and the toumal/toomal was the name for the field belonging to the house,  where hens would have been kept or kale grown.  It seemed appropriate as my studio is in the garden!

 Where possible I have used old Orkney dialect words and place names in my titles.

We

We are in the process of building a brand new Toumal Art Studio! Work is progressing at a good rate and we are on shedule for opening in April 2022. In the meantime I'm working from a temporary space in my partners shed where you are very welcome to visit but due to building work muddy roads etc you are safer to phone first to arrange a time to visit.

 

Open by appointment only during the winter months.

Directions:  From Kirkwall head out the Orphir Road (that takes you past Scapa Flow) and look for the signs on the right hand side about 1 mile after the Germiston Road junction.
From Stromness turn in the Orphir road just past the bridge and follow the road round through the village and look for the signs on the left hand side about 1/2 mile after the speed limit signs.
Daisy Cottage,  Orphir,  Orkney,  KW17 2RB
