We are very fortunate to have so many talented and diverse artists in the town. You will find some on the hight street and others tucked away down our winding streets in their workshops. During the annual Spring Fling week, many artists open up their studios to the public.

....explore and discover!

Margaret Walty

Margaret Walty's early years in sunlit countries gave her a love of light and colour, and her training as a silversmith and jeweller honed her eye for the minute detail she puts into her paintings, which are inspired by myth and fairy tale, and by the landscapes and nature of her mother’s home country in the borderlands of Scotland, where she has lived for the past thirty years.

Janet Carson

I mainly paint animals, lots of pets especially dogs in my commission work, but I am finding enjoyment in experimenting with different mediums, with a semi abstract flow art style, mixed with realism and sculpting developing in my work. I like to paint landscapes, sea, flower as well as animals and birds.

Julie Dumbarton

I’ve been drawing longer than I can remember, and painting since not much after that. As a youngster I was often to be found roaming the Lake District hills with my brother, sister and parents. Many weekends were spent scrambling up hills – surrounded by glorious landscapes, atmospheric skies and colourful plants. Painting courses and shop at the studio.
