Spirit of Cairngorms
Spirit of Cairngorms includes the work of Artist David Fallows and Jewellery and Card Maker Lena Fallows, who live and work in Newtonmore.
David has painted since selling his first work at the age of just twelve years. More recently he painted the pictures used as the work of 'Molly MacDonald' (Susan Hampshire) in the long-running TV series 'Monarch of the Glen'. He was originally trained in Oils, but now paints mostly in watercolour, with oils and pastes still featuring from time to time. David also produces a range of greetings cards based on his paintings of the Scottish Landscape and has also recently begun to experiment in landscape created from fused glass.
Lena works with hand made cards using an increasingly complex mix of die cutting, stamping and surface textures and also produces hand made jewellery from a wide range of semi precious stones including pendants, ear-rings and bracelets.
Their work is available for sale on their website, through Creative Cairngorms and Society of Badenoch and Strathspey Artists' exhibitions and through one or two outlets in Newtonmore.
Due to severely restricted space their studio is not normally open to the public, though a phone call can often provide for a suitable arrangement to view to be made.
