Name: Graham Bennison.

3 Beechbank, Foodieash, near Cupar, Fife, KY15 4PW.

Studio Address: 3 Beechbank, Foodieash.

My studio is a garden house at the bottom of the garden. Visitors would be welcome to see a lino or wood engraving rolled up and printed on the roller press – even having a go themselves! The majority of work would be displayed in two rooms in the house and weather permitting the back patio.

My latest watercolour painting, Kilmaron Hill Woods (two weeks ago) gives an example of approach to work and planning: –

Photo: Early October 2022. Pencil sketch. Painted sketch. Finished watercolour. Framed.

Some examples Foodieash art work:-

Foodieash oil. Hilton House watercolour. Main St Foodieash oil. Harvest stubble at Foodieash oil.

Fine Prints: Lino-cuts.

Ceres 2022. Toppings Bookshop 2022. Myrecairnie 2021. Ceres Glebe 2021. Falkland 2021.


Dundee. Dundee The Unicorn. West Shore, Pittenweem.

I could go on for ever, but I hope this will suffice as examples: With 766 friends on my personal Facebook page I do not have to go far to sell my work. I do have an art Facebook page which is a mixture of artwork and art blogs. As I say my main audience is my friends.

Work is currently displayed in the Bishop Bridge Tearoom, Ceres.

My wood-cut was adopted this summer as the logo for the tea-room.

Other recent commissions:

Foodieash Doocot oil. Greyhounds – linocut. Charleston House (home of the Bloomsbury Group) watercolour. Man with his now deceased dog – I do not actively choose to do pet portraits !

When Elmwood College had an art dept. the college purchased a number of my works. Locally an exhibition of my work took place at Cairnie a few years ago.

Friends have tried to persuade me to join up for a few years, now I am taking the plunge. If you require more info’ please do ask. 01334-656844 07731904559.
