About Rudy And The Rowan Tree

Rudy And The Rowan Tree

Unique wooden items, handcrafted in Renfrewshire, Scotland

I live by the Clyde Estuary in Renfrewshire in the west of Scotland with my husband Mike (who is a sign painter) and my rescue dog Rudy (who is a terror!). I taught myself to screenprint in 2015, experimenting with pattern and surface until I decided to concentrate on printing on wood - it's great to print on and I really like the texture the of the ink on this surface.

I live in a rural area where I spend a lot of time gazing at the landscape, the wildlife and the ever-changing skies. In the back garden there is an old outhouse where we keep anything we can't fit into the house, including a lot of wood off-cuts left over from other projects. Rather than just using them for firewood, I thought it would be good to utilise them in a creative way which led me to making little wooden houses, and Rudy and the Rowan Tree was born!
Since then I have 'branched' out into all sorts of decorative items including pictures, wearables and objet d'art.

I am grateful for each and every time someone purchases my work, and am a firm supporter of the Just A Card campaign, which encourages consumers to buy from independent businesses.
