Janie is a designer and maker of furniture and wooden crafts.
Morris of Portobello’s creative vision is to make beautifully functional well-made pieces of wooden furniture with both practical purpose and artistic merit. Janie’s work is based on strong design features, executed in high quality and sustainably sourced (locally when possible) wood.

During my 15 years in the industry I have created designs for print and screen for all manner of clients, from a sole trader about to launch a business to an established multinational with a turnover of billions.

I’m fascinated by the physicality and spirit of a body and it’s potential for pleasure, pain and expression. Idiosyncratic character is intrinsically important in my work but an anatomical, pulsing, critical view is also there. The image is an accurate representation but the close detail is an expressive pattern describing minute features. It’s a record of my examination of the subject and my relationship with them rather than a slavish copy of their every pore. I like using body paint and projectors to give my subjects something to interact with which often leads to an image which articulates the anatomy of the body or lets them be part of the process in deciding which pose or composition works best. It’s interesting to watch how people react with these tools and whether they use them self consciously or instinctively. The potential ambiguity and tension in the eye contact of a still image is something I find enormously compelling and I have tried to appeal for a reaction in the viewer. The quality of flesh, its contrasting textures and tensions, the density and potential of muscle and the irregularity and dimples in fatty tissue are important in the way I want to describe any given subject. I want the bodies I paint to be a strange mixture of lurid, glistening attraction and true empathic realism avoiding elegant cliches. They reflect private selves and acknowledge my inescapable role as a voyeur in observing and recreating them. A period of serious illness has detached my idea of personality from physicality – I want to paint the two back together again.
I’m a writer, performer and producer who loves the story in everything. Part of Debasers Filums, and available to go outside for MC work or happy to stay inside for copywriting, script writing and development work.
Born in 1990 (just a young’un!), live in Edinburgh and have always had a passion for taking photos. I like to shoot a bit of everything, from static landscapes and architecture, to gigs/club nights, portraits and “action shots”. I’ve done my fair share of weddings and events over the years and have plenty references from satisfied clients. Drop me a line if you have something in mind, I’m always happy for an excuse to take photos.
Strollers Music School will teach you how to make music, not just play it. We believe that is is more important to help our students to fulfil their own personal goals, rather that just stick to a curriculum.
The school was started by Tomlin Leckie as an antidote to all the music teachers out there who are just keeping one step ahead of their students rather than truly knowing their stuff.
At Strollers all of our tutors are full-time musicians with years of experience teaching and excellent credentials.
We offer tuition in guitar, blues harmonica, piano, bass guitar and ukulele.
Dr Sara Watkin offers a service that combines physiotherapy, osteopathic and psycho-physical educational tools to manage pain or disability.
