Exhibition Event with drop-in kids creative corner
Sat 2 Dec 10-6pm
As part of Leith Creative Trail
How the flowers rise, and open is a solo exhibition of new work by Artist, Katy Smail. The paintings are a meditation on the magic of the natural world. An exploration of the wisdom, mysticism and healing to be found in the precious wildflower meadows of Scotland. With her work, Katy imagines a world where reverence for Mother Nature and divine feminine energy - a form of knowing that values feelings, embodied knowledge and intergenerational wisdom – is our North Star. Paintings that celebrate the peace and joy we can find when we allow ourselves to live softly, as part of this Earth. A call to protect our wild and natural world; a call to honour our wild and natural selves.
Katy Smail was born and raised in Scotland, graduated from Edinburgh College of Art and then moved to New York for ten years, where she began her career as an Illustrator, Painter, and Art Director. She is now back in Scotland, surrounded by the wildflowers and wild landscapes which inspire her work.
