Rowan Leckie

Scotland, 1986


Artist/Designer

BA (Hons) in Performance Costume, from The University of Edinburgh. (2019)

studied Costume design which allowed me to explore a wide range of techniques from millinery to historical pattern cutting as well as textile and illustration tuition

Previous to this I obtained a HND in illustration with design and did a year long Art foundation year. 

My degree was a creative opportunity to combine my interest in a range of mediums and techniques, flat and 3D works. I am infulanced by a range of artist and the natural environment. I am constantly intrigued by themes of belonging and identity these themes reappear in my work even when I am not directly aware of it.  

In my range of greetings cards I depict Edinburgh's old buildings. They are created using traditional printing methods, Monoprinting with watercolour and freehand line work. 

The building are the tenements I grew up in as a girl. We moved around a lot but to Edinburgh we always returned.

 

Original prints and greetings cards can be found in galleries and local business in and around the city, including the Dovecot Studios, and Edinburgh Bookshop, as well as my online shop.

If you are a shop and interested in stocking cards please e-mail for wholesale prices.
