Jane Francis – “I’ve recently taken the exciting step of having some of my artwork professionally copied and made into prints and greeting cards, hopefully making my work more accessible to a larger audience.”
Has anybody else had experience with turning their artwork into prints and/or cards? Did you manage to reach out to a wider audience; what were your experiences with quality of prints, and how did having this done effect your practice as an artist?
You’ll find Jane’s prints and cards at Maker, 2a High Street Inverkeithing, and My Cherry Pie at 301 High Street Kirkcaldy.
Martine started painting more than 20 years ago. Eight years ago she started a pottery course at the Kirkcaldy Art Club and from then on ceramic tools have slowly taken over from paint brushes. Her hand-built elephants each have their own unique character and vary in size, shape and appearance. She’s not completely pushed her paints to the side though. Little mixed media paintings get made into notebooks, and lino prints are made into gift tags, cards and notebooks. All very lovely. Form an orderly queue now!
Martine will have a table at our forthcoming INVERKEITHING FESTIVE MAKERS MARKET, on Saturday 12th December 11AM 4.30PM at the Inverkeithing Civic Centre, Queen Street, KY11 1PA.

Inspired by a love of vintage style, The Barbary Wood creates costume jewellery, using reworked beads, faux pearls, faux amber, crystal, Art Deco style beads and U.S. brass stampings. The vintage feel also extends to mixed media artwork, greeting cards and collage, all handmade with paper and found objects which are machine and hand stitched.
You can indulge your passion for this nostalgic and romantic look at The Barbary Wood’s stall at our ART:JAM on Saturday 12th September in Inverkeithing Civic Centre, 11am-4.30pm
Boxoftrix handmakes unique and exquisite embroidered framed art, textile jewellery and accessories made from recycled wool blankets, vintage crochet, old denim jeans, and many of the pieces are embellished and hand embroidered. As well as fabric items Boxoftrix make greetings cards and paper bunting from recycled maps and sheet music.
“I like to recycle as much as possible in my work to keep costs low, benefiting everyone. I am just a small creative business making whatever I take a notion to do and reusing and repurposing what I have.”
We’re delighted to welcome Boxofrix to our ART:JAM on Saturday 12th September at Inverkeithing Civic Centre.
