Scotland is full of amazing places. These buildings and places trigger memories and emotions and our aim is for this to come across in the contemporary Scottish art we make.
"We don't choose where to draw, people commission us to draw places that mean a lot to them and we make high quality prints available for others to enjoy. You see, it's not about our story, it's about your story and your connection to places that mean the most to you."
Jackton Art started one rainy Sunday during lockdown. I drew the church where my parents married as an anniversary gift. The reaction was amazing, “You drew this? Really?!!”
The idea of Jackton Art was born to produce drawings of Scotland that bring back memories and emotions of special places. David is the artist, drawing highly detailed pen and pencil drawings of Scottish places. Natalie is our digital Artist, adding coloured backgrounds and effects to give our work a contemporary feel. Frances runs much of the operational side of the business in between lecturing at our local college.
Thanks for coming with us on this journey.
In starting Jackton Art we wanted to show that business can be about making a profit while also doing good in our community. Our first opportunity came a few weeks after we started. A friend received a MND (Motor Neurone Disease) diagnosis and we were thinking how we could help. As fate would have it Doddie Weir (a former Scottish rugby player who has been diagnosed with MND) popped up on the telly and we heard about the My Name'5 Doddie foundation. We now have dedicated products that raise money for the foundation for every one sold.
We love working with community groups and charities, offering original drawings for auction as well as prints for raffles. Get in touch if you'd like to chat about working together.
