Lainy Allison – colour is my passion

“I am a passionately firm believer that colour is, like music, a major player in influence in our everyday lives.”

Lainy Allison is an incredibly versatile visual artists, whose inspiration is drawn not only from the rich colours she finds around her, but also history and her own imagination. She uses techniques such as ink and photography to create meditations on memory and form, textured paint to create warm and immediate senses of place, and experimental photography to explore light and movement.

You’ll be able to view, and purchase, Lainy’s wonderful works of art at our ART:JAM on Saturday 12th September at Inverkeithing Civic Centre from 11am-4.30pm.

At the ART:JAM Art & Craft Market on Saturday 12th September 11am-4.30pm there will be free creative activities for children, based on recycling, up-cycling and repurposing materials to make something new, led by volunteer local artists. You’ll find these on the stage of the hall at Inverkeithing Civic Centre. 

The wonderful Ann’s Doodles will also be providing colouring sheets of her beautiful intricate drawings for members of the public to have a go at colouring themselves. Colouring sheets and pencils and pens will be available at the children’s creative activities area on the stage.
