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 …

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.

Sea Glass Scarf

Sea glass was the inspiration behind this beautiful scarf and sea glass was even used in to create it.
