Hi - I'm Glenda

I’d like to welcome you to Quirky Paintbrush where I blog about my creative life by the sea in Scotland.
I’m an artist, a designer and a creator of many different things.  I am inspired by colour and by the beautiful coastal scenery here in the Rhins of Galloway.

Why don’t you grab a cuppa and take a look around. I hope you’ll find something here to inspire you and who knows, maybe we’ll connect and hang out on Facebook or you’ll come to my studio and take a class with me. It could be the start of a beautiful friendship …

As 2018 draws to a close

A six month round up of the latter half of the year. There’s a reason I’ve been quiet – I’ve been getting on with stuff!

Nuno felted mandala scarf

This week I cashed in one of my birthday presents – a thoroughly enjoyable felting afternoon with Linda Irving. I took along this silk chiffon scarf that I had dyed and she took me through the process of nuno felting it.

Scottish Mustard

A colourful and complex crochet shawl made in the depths of winter, but with sunshine in mind.

Once upon a time …

It’s not the most exciting of tales, but here’s the (very long) story of our house move from Portpatrick to Drummore.

Coming Soon …

If you’ve read any other posts here, I’m sure you are aware that I seem to be metamorphosing into a textile artist. I am drawn to fibre, yarn and dyes more than anything at the moment.

Makes me look like a Snowman

Take one beautiful white linen top and spend the weekend splashing it around in buckets of dye.
