I am hoping to share my house, garden and art with people. I would like to give inspiration to anyone interested in art or creating art, perhaps in designing a similar lifestyle or with questions about the art world. I invite folk to come and explore my space and my work and to bring any questions they may have.
I'm an Edinburgh based, self-taught artist. I have been creating artwork and teaching the piano for the last 30 years. Ten years ago I bought a dilapidated bungalow on the south eastern edge of the city and have been gradually transforming it. This has enabled me to follow my dreams of making a garden, painting, sculpting and teaching all in one place. I have work in private collections worldwide, on bookcovers etc. People can check out my website for more info: www.ruthaddinall.co.uk, but my aim with this Experience is for folk to have direct contact with my work and with me and my space.
Sweet and savoury
Tea, coffee, soft drinks.
You will visit me in my home/studio and have a unique glimpse of how I lead my life: my art studio, my work, my garden. It is an unexpected space out in the suburbs and shows what can be done with very little. The space isn't huge but is very rich with artwork everywhere and plants and birds in abundance.
The experience will largely be dictated by the guests' engagement: questions on influence, techniques, inspiration, practical aspects, ideas etc. Artwork ranging in price from 50p upwards available.
