A new face in Portobello

JANE GRANT is the proud new owner of The Velvet Easel gallery in Portobello, Edinburgh, a contemporary art gallery exhibiting an eclectic range of modern art by local, Scottish and international artists. Established in 2013, the gallery aims to present a programme of exhibitions throughout the year, including solo-shows and group exhibitions by emerging as well as established artists from all artistic backgrounds.

Jane says: "I am delighted to have taken over ownership of The Velvet Easel Gallery in Portobello, and have really enjoyed putting our new Winter Exhibition together.

"During my 22 year career as an occupational therapist, I have utilised art and creative activities as a therapeutic tool, and have always understood the importance of art and the creative process. The transition to gallery owner just after lockdown has been interesting, enjoyable and challenging in equal measure!

"We are fortunate to have a very supportive customer base, and it has been great to meet them over the past few months. I have really enjoyed meeting the incredibly talented artists who exhibit with us, in addition to welcoming many new artists to the gallery. I am very lucky to be able to spend my days at work surrounded by so much amazing and inspiring artwork!”
