Art for Children – Dinomania!

I feel very fortunate to have grown up with real paintings as I am convinced this is how my interest was sparked to learn to paint. I remember spending hours looking at them.

When I was asked to produce a dinosaur exhibition for Jurassic Lanark, my motivation was this – what if some of these paintings found their way into children’s lives and inspired them to paint and to create?

Following a dinosaur thread was compelling and I definitely fell down a dinosaur rabbit hole if such a thing existed! In painting Dinomania I realised that the anatomy of our animals is not so very different despite the millions of years of separation.

We are surrounded by living dinosaurs that we must treasure!

Dinomania is on at the Tolbooth Lanark with paintings at affordable prices.
