As well as being a studio holder based at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop sinceI am also member of Fife Dunfermline Print Workshop where Sheila is based and was chairperson of the organisation for many years.

We both studied Fine Art Drawing and Printmaking. Your son is Sam, star of Outlander. Have you felt the 'Outlander effect' resonate with your work, with support from Sam's fans?
He has a massive fan base around the world now, and inevitably they have gotten hold of my website and my other arts advertising media. I have seen photos taken at a private view last year in Banchory posted on a site in the USA. My website has had over a hits this week alone so I guess they do support.

And this is them finding a place for them to start completely afresh. The dialogue is richly layered and feels more grounded now, as they are older. But don't you worry, there are still some steamy scenes.
Is Outlander star Sam Heughan about to become a father?
Even in the first episode. So please know, this baby talk is cute and fun and all.
But really, this is a cautionary tale. Watch Outlander at your own risk!
