Elspeth Lamb is an expert in her art form which she taught for over twenty years at Edinburgh College of Art, latterly as Head of the Printmaking department .In 1999 she left the college to embrace a freelance career, a momentous decision that allowed her to divide her time from then on between her own practice and teaching through workshops.
Travels had always been important to her work and she was now able to spend even more time abroad at the invitation of art institutions. Japan has always held a particular fascination for her and in 2000 she got the opportunity to immerse herself in its culture when she was selected for an international residency programme. She spent ten weeks in the area of Nagasawa, Awaji Island and turned the tables on herself by becoming the pupil of master craftsmen to study moku hanga, a water-based method of woodblock printing that produces stunningly vivid and transparent colour prints.
Since then Elspeth has returned to Japan on numerous occasions, invited to speak at conferences (Tokyo 2014) and undertake residences (Ogawa and Lake Kawaguchiko 2016).She teaches moku hanga at various venues in the UK and abroad including her South Block studio in Glasgow and she has plans to advertise lithography workshops there during 2017. Elsepth is a published author (Papermaking for Printmakers, Bloomsbury Press) and works within the area of digital and traditional printmaking, book arts, and public art projects.

I graduated in 2003 with a BA(hons) in Fine Art from Duncan of Jordanstone and have exhibited in a wide variety of venues throughout Scotland.
I create my artwork for exhibitions and on commission. I also have experience of teaching art and curating exhibitions.
I enjoy painting many subjects and find exploring the use of mixed media and different textures an exciting challenge. I create my artwork by using layers of different mediums including oils, inks, watercolour, decoupage and fabric onto one canvas.
I am a film producer and director with 15 years of experience in drama and online video. My company Veejo specialises in promotional content for large organisations.
