  • About Ren

    A fine artist, glass designer and art tutor since 1990, in recent years concentrating my practice in exploratory drawing research, printmaking and writing.


    Through drawing practice themes and concepts emerge and a contemplatative process of dialogue in image and poetical form evolves.  I am interested in the relationship between image and language; how imagery informs material constructs and reflective thought. 


    A significant part of drawing enquiry explores ideas using Stone Lithography. This 200 year old printmaking technique involves drawing on limestone which is then chemically processed and from which an image can then be printed.


    A member of Edinburgh Printmakers I regularly show and sell my prints in EP exhibitions and the gallery shop. My work is shown in Scotland and Internationally.


    My print 'A Present' commissioned by Edinburgh Printmakers  

    for their 50th Anniversary Exhibition 'Paper To Gold' 2017, was shown by EP at Impact10Print Biennale, Santander, Spain, 2018. This edition is on sale at my studio and at


    The website glass gallery shows an archive of completed glass designs for various clients; private residencies, shopping mall and restaurant as well as community projects. I continue to work in architectural glass design and accept commissions.  

    To commission a glass  design contact me by phone or email. The commissioning process can be discussed at the studio where samples of glass and design folios of completed work can be viewed.  


    I teach various art workshops and courses including drawing and handmade printmaking to individuals and groups in my studio as well as other venues. I am available to give talks and demonstrations about my art practice. 


    A resume of my exhibitions and commissioned work is available on request. Please contact me for further details and any enquiries regarding my art working, teaching and purchase of stone lithograph prints, drawings and glass at the following;
