Happy International Woman's Day! It really doesn't feel like a year since I sat down to write "My Favourite Women-Led Edinburgh Businesses!". It wasn't till this morning that I figured out how, in my small way, I could take part this year. I've decided I'd like to shine a light on a few of my favourite Edinburgh-based artists that I truly admire.
A quick disclaimer before we begin, there are so many wonderfully talented Edinburgh artists, these are just a few of my personal favourites, so please don't feel left out if I haven't included you!

International Woman's Day: My Favourite Edinburgh-Based Artists!

1. Studio Emma

Emma is an amazingly talented Edinburgh-based artist who creates stunning pieces from concrete. Everything from concrete alphabet letters to vessels of all shapes and sizes. I've been a huge fan of Studio Emma's work for a while now but I finally got a chance to meet her last month! As well as being very talented, I can vouch for what a lovely person she is too.

2. Rachelle W Designs

Rachelle creates beautiful, bold patterns which are then transformed into a range of unique home and lifestyle products. I first came across Rachelle at a Christmas fair, and I remember being in awe of her stunning "Scenes of Edinburgh" print (see below).

3. Hatti Pattisson 

Another extremely talented artist, is (fellow Fifer) Hatti Pattisson! She's been creating expressive, emotive land and seascapes for over fifteen years. I don't claim to know much about art but I find her pieces absolutely captivating. Hatti creates everything from original works of art to a range of textiles and lampshades.

4. Ashley from Behind Bracken 

Thanks to Life Story for introducing me to this amazing (fairly new) brand! Ashley who created Behind Bracken designs and makes stunning, minimal jewellery and handcrafted objects. She lovingly creates each item in her Edinburgh studio using traditional goldsmithing techniques and embracing the natural imperfections of the handmade.

5. Kate George Designs

Despite walking past Kate George's beautiful artwork for years, it was only recently that I found out who was behind the series of beautiful murals in Southside. If you're in the area, be sure to check out her designs on Gifford Park Path, Gibb's Entry, and Haddon's Court.

That's all for now! I've definitely missed plenty other talented ladies so please do drop me a comment below if you think of any more. Take care and have a blessed week.
