Art, Crafts and Antiques from Ayrshire in Scotland

For more than twenty years, Alan Lees worked as a successful sculptor, mainly in wood. When, some ten years ago, arthritis began to make his huge, trademark carvings increasingly difficult, he began to focus on unusual and colourful ‘naive’ artworks in acrylics, large and colourful paintings full of movement and activity, often depicting a wealth of figures in traditional settings. His art has been variously described in terms of Lowry, Fred Yates, Grandma Moses and even Breugel.

However, during 2020, Alan found that he could resume woodcarving again, if could sit down and work on smaller pieces at a sloping bench. Consequently, he finished an extraordinary carving of the Last Supper - and now he is working on a long term project of a totally hand carved chess set. You will find a selection of all his recent work here in the 200 Year Old House.

Meanwhile, we have also decided to consolidate our other antique and occasional restoration business here on Etsy. Catherine - when she isn't working on her successful novels and non-fiction books - deals in beautiful antique and vintage textiles and other curios with a Scottish or Irish provenance.

We even occasionally undertake a restoration project together.

We hope you like our 2021 selection.
