Mhairi Callan says ‘I have been drawing and painting since I could hold a pencil.’

Mhairi studied commercial art at The Glasgow College of Commerce and The London College of Art.

Mhairi works in all media, preferring oil and charcoal, as to her choice of subjects, she enjoys trying to capture nature in all it’s glory.

Mhairi started  teaching in 1987, while continuing to produce commissioned works, works for sale and exhibitions.

She has exhibited in several open exhibitions and has won Best Artist Award. She has also had a couple of successful solo exhibitions.

Mhairi says, ‘I have “reset” my art during lockdown searching for a new “voice” going forward. So the theme of this exhibition was quite serendipitous.’

Charlene Campbell is a local artist based in the Lanark area. After a 30 year break a friend encouraged her to pick up the paint brush again. She joined the Corra Linn art group run by Veronica Liddell and there got the bug again for painting.  

Charlene paints using a variety of techniques, styles and in a number of mediums. She loves to experiment using acrylics, ink and watercolours painting abstract landscapes, semi abstract people to detailed animal portraits. The one constant that links her work is vivid colours and contrast. 

To date, the majority of Charlene’s work is sold by recommendations via word of mouth, as commissions. In addition to this, Charlene has displayed her work in a number of exhibitions held at the Tollbooth in Lanark, the Corra Linn art gallery at New Lanark and at the Jam & Ham Art Exhibition in Carluke. She doesn’t currently have a website or FB business page but you can email her on [email protected]

Thom by training is a theatre artist and developed a career teaching and making theatre for many, many years. 

Thom says ‘I resist calling myself a visual artist, I lack the talent but I thoroughly enjoy making marks and using colour as an intuitive hobbyist. I was spoilt for colour having lived in the Caribbean for over 30 years and I still retain a Caribbean pallet, at least in my head where I am constantly looking for meaning in my work.’

He wrote this piece for the Jam and Ham art exhibition some years ago.

We paint a bird that never flies
We draw a loved one who never dies
We make marks that have some meaning
A shape that shows an inner feeling

Portraits that reveal the soul
A hurt broken; now made whole
Darkness made visible: a feeling expressed
A moment in time laid to rest.

Light and line, the magic of colour
Art is love shared with another
So express your joy and yes, your pain
For painting is its name.

‘Capturing the moment with a pen and paper by drawing what I see in the here and now has become increasingly important to me as things in our world change so rapidly. I began ‘Drawing the Street’ drawing full length street scenes in 2013, following a career as a conservation architect. To date, I’ve drawn over fifty streets, all meaningful to me, all standing as records of our environment and including the people and features that were there at the time of drawing.

All the drawings are saved and shared publicly on my website www.drawingthestreet.co.uk and on a blog where I archive all the streets as individual images www.drawingthedetail.com  Various insights of history are added to the blog as they are discovered.

For my street drawings and urban sketches, I work mostly in pen and ink with colour washes. I often use hand-made paint with the lovely rich earth pigments and bright mineral colours.

I have also built up quite a collection of whisky label artwork having been commissioned by Sansibar Whisky of Germany to draw original artwork for their independent bottlings of some of Scotland’s finest whisky, including a commission to draw over 400 individual labels for a 1976 Speyside malt.

Since moving to one of the old orchards in the Clyde Valley, I’ve been keen to broaden my skills to be able to express the rich and varied landscape here. In early December 2019 I began a daily drawing routine to record everything that is growing in the orchard using the simple medium of pen and ink and watercolour on paper. I now have almost ten months of drawings – a lot of things grow here!’

Ronnie is delighted to take commissions to draw individual houses, shop fronts or favourite buildings and her work can be flexible to keep within your budget.

Nan is a big part of the reason we have a Jam and Ham exhibition!

Over 20 years ago Nan joined John Bell’s Art School in Biggar, fulfilling a life-long ambition to paint. There she studied fine art and over the years attended courses at Strathclyde University which helped develop her work using most mediums and drawing on her natural love of colour and texture.

In 2015 Nan was asked to introduce an Art Exhibition into the Jam and Ham programme. This  has become a popular event, bringing together artists from the local art community and giving them the opportunity to exhibit and sell their work.

Recently she has had the privilege of volunteering in the Crossreach Heart for Art group as part of St Andrews Church Dementia Support project. Nan says ‘This has been both an inspiring and rewarding experience allowing me to share in my love of painting’.

Mary is a local artist and has been painting for about 35 years. Her main interest is watercolour but she also works in oils and acrylic. 

Mary has been a member of the John Bell School of Art, Sharon Bradley Botanic Art School, and previous to that attended Mhairi Callan’s Art class here in Carluke. 

Mary was first introduced to art in her home town of Forth by Josephine Brokenhueisen who started art classes there and has since become a well known artist with exhibitions in Glasgow and London etc. 

Mary takes her inspiration from the countryside where the colours lend well to watercolour and her love of flower painting.

Keith started painting about 10 years ago when someone gave him a painting by numbers book as he suffered from PTSD from the army.

He basically paints with anything but on canvas enjoys acrylics and has done many commissions as well as lots of charity work, painting murals – one of the most recent being at street level in Carluke where he taught the kids while painting a scene on the side of a container in their community garden.

Keith still works with kids affected by addiction and alcohol through Blameless Children’s Charity based in Hamilton Accies FC teaching them how to use art to help with their emotions and several veterans groups and has donated a painting to Erskine Hospital for veterans. His latest work has involved working in conjunction with the C7 Church in Glasgow helping men suffering from mental health issues using art and explaining how it helps him.

The last three gala days he has taught one of the page girls and the champion with their window completion, how to draw, use power tools and set the scene to decorate their houses 

He also builds pantomime sets for groups and every year makes the grotto for St Athanasius parish Christmas Fair which is then used in other churches/community groups for their fairs.

At present he is helping build a fairy/bird house for the community gardens in Carluke in which he has involved the children in his street all of whom are under 10.

You can find Keith on FB @keithfrasrerart where most of work can be viewed

Born and raised in Airdrie, Iain has always had a strong interest in art and from an early age spent much time drawing and painting at home. He attended Airdrie Academy for six years, spending as much time as possible in the art department and entering many art competitions, with several successes. Further education was at Glasgow School of Art, where he graduated with a Diploma of Art in Graphic Design.

After several years working in design studios and advertising agencies, Iain opened his own graphic design studio, which he ran successfully until his retirement. Since then he has continued his involvement in art and is now able to devote more time to drawing and painting. With a particular interest in nature, landscape and still life, he works mainly in watercolour, pastel and acrylic.

Pat lives in Thankerton with her husband, two children now married and fled the nest and four grandchildren nearby so not a lot of time recently for her artwork, but hoping that will change in the years to come!

Pat has loved drawing since childhood and this has developed in adult life into working in mixed media, collage and also fabrics using stitching by hand and machine. She  also does a little felt work, both wet felting and dry needlefelting. The only materials she doesn’t use are oil paints, at the moment anyway!

Pat’s subject matter is varied, she says ‘my inspiration comes from anything that catches my eye in my surroundings to phrases or ideas which rattle round in the back of my brain until I can let them out – sometimes this can take a year or two! I then choose whatever materials seem appropriate for an interpretation of the subject in a way which will give it a new life of its own and hopefully will ‘speak’ to a viewer. Creating interesting and unusual images in her art practice is her aim – I have to keep doing it – it’s in my ‘DNA’ – always has been and hope it always will be.’

Pat has been exhibiting and selling pieces of her work recently at the Lanark Tolbooth

More of her work will be on view and available for sale via the Biggar Little Festival virtual exhibition website later this autumn.

‘As a child I remember seeing a Russell Flint print in a friend’s house and it made such an impression on me, the beauty of the colours and the way the paint seemed to portray the image perfectly. Maybe that was my inspiration!’

In 2004 Evelyn decided she wanted to learn to paint using watercolours, so joined a painting class run by local artist Mhairi Callan where an absolute passion for art began. Followed this up with a short pastel painting course with John Stoa in Dundee to learn the basic techniques for the medium and then a couple of trips to the Norfolk Painting School to learn from the master – Martin Kinnear – how to use oils and how to achieve luminosity Having retired after 40 years in NHS Lanarkshire Clinical Laboratories she now enjoys more time dedicated to painting and helping support and promote local artists exhibiting at the Tolbooth in Lanark and the Jam and Ham Festival.

Evelyn is a member of Veronica Liddell’s Corra Linn Artists in New Lanark and Sharon Bradley’s Biggar Botanical Artists Group. Today she paints in all mediums depending on subject and timescales and is happy to do commission work, specialising in wedding bouquets.

Murray Orr is a photographer based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Working in food, travel and lifestyle, his passion is to capture life, finding stories in characters and places. Growing up in Scotland, Murray attributes the quiet calmness of his images to the natural surroundings of his upbringing.

This piece is an excerpt from a recent body of work studying the relationship between humankind and nature and how this manifests itself in identity, specifically in Scotland.

The Jam and Ham Art Exhibition is one of Ann’s favourite local events and she enjoys meeting and sharing experiences with other local art and crafters. 

Ann’s background is in Industrial textile design, but after a short career designing for the Edinburgh Woollen Mill, she left and worked first as a Primary School Teacher, where her art was utilised well and laterly taught Secondary Art and Design Teacher before being retired on ill health. Ann now has the privilege of being an artist and designer and has developed her own recognisable style painting in watercolour.

She has one favourite subject – Scottish landscapes, but also loves to paint most subjects so long as she can adorn them with colour, shape and pattern. 

Richard has worked as a professional artist since 1989 in mediums ranging from large scale forged and fabricated steel civic sculpture to painting, printmaking and pottery.

His first love is pottery and currently he runs a small home-based studio producing pottery and ceramic sculpture in the village of Thankerton at The Limes.  Richard produces both wheel thrown and hand built ceramics and ceramic sculpture and continuously experiments with different shapes, glazes, colours, techniques and firing processes producing robust functional stoneware, decorative Raku ware and Fumed ware as well as a growing range of colourful and unique pottery for outdoor garden use.

The studio opened in early 2020 and more recently Richard has added a small gallery also at home where he can display and sell his work. The gallery visits are arranged direct and are by appointment only with opening hours currently 8am-8pm, seven days a week. Please visit his Facebook business page @richardpricestudio for more information.

Ciara is our youngest entrant with a really thought proving entry.

I’m Ciara Reynolds. I’m 12 years old. I live in Law and I love roller skating. 

To me the girl’s costume is about her appreciating the work done by NHS workers. She holds a pumpkin to show hope for the future, that Halloween will (hopefully) be back to normal. The tree is about change, to the season and to our lives just now.


Annie loves painting the gorgeous Scottish scenery, wildlife, highland cows, amongst many other subjects.

She has been painting in oils for a long time now. Rheumatoid Arthritis led to medical retirement and Annie has been determined to continue painting, as long as she can. Annie says ‘It gives me a lot of pleasure to create my artwork and see it away to lovely new homes’

Annie enters local exhibitions and loves this art community and the support it receives.

This is Lyle’s first time exhibiting with Jam and Ham.

He is 18 years old and has just started studying interior design at college. He says ‘I’ve always been the arty one since nursery and since then I’ve just kept trying to improve my skills’

Lyle’s favourite media to work in is coloured pencils, and he takes commissions for coloured pencil pet portraits.

If you would like to see more of his work, reviews and prices, you can find him on Instagram and Facebook as @LyleWaddellArt.
