Lainy is the final artist in our line-up of makers who will be displaying and selling their beautiful work this Saturday in Inverkeithing, a fitting end to the list as both she and her work are so lovely! Lainy is proficient in a wide range of mixed media techniques and her work is much sought after and loved by admiring collectors. Her work and images are extracted from an array of influences, history, culture, architecture, family and nature.
“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.

The next artist in our line-up for the ‘Spring Into Summer’ Art & Craft Fair on May 2nd in Inverkeithing is Lainy Allison. We are welcoming Lainy back to Inverkeithing as she also joined us for our event in December 2014, where her work was greatly admired.
Lainy is a highly versatile artist. As she expresses it, she:
“….explores a range of materials and tools from sculpture, painting, textile design to writing. Her work and images are extracted from an array of influences, history, culture, architecture, family, light, fire, water, organic and synthetic. With gesture, drawing out, layering, material and process, revelatory of each other, the making of the art is part of the content. Her art practice does not just become an image but a creation.”
Her work is exhibited in galleries and non-profit art spaces and has numerous collectors of her work. Lainy is a co-founder of CAD (Contemporary Arts in Dunfermline).
Visit Tom Bishop-de-Main’s website to learn more about this imaginative painter. Tom’s work teems with fascinating detail.
