Pittenweem Arts Festival


Festival 2023 August 5 - 12

Artick Design

John Baker, sole artist in the gallery, uses different media in his work such as oils, water colours, pen and ink, chalk pastels, pencils and even household emulsion paint. This enthusiasm for experimentation and creativity is reflected in the originality and range of his work. His speciality lies in historic pen and ink illustrations, mainly local with his latest exhibition being: Villages of Fife in Pen and Ink.
