Wester Ross firefighter artist in Russia show

  • 7-8-2010

Vicky Stonebridge, from Lochcarron, will attend an international symposium in the Republic of Tatarstan.

She will be joining Lynn Bennett-Mackenzie, from Gairloch, for the trip next month.

The Wester Ross artists expect to be the only UK representatives at the event in the city of Elabuga.

Their artwork will be exhibited as examples of Scottish heritage.

_48277769_lynn_226.jpgArtists from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Belarus and India are also expected at the event organised by the Elabuga State Historical, Architectural and Art Museum.

Ms Stonebridge is a freelance artist who produces and teaches art, illustrations and crafts.

She co-runs the Highlands International Comic Expo, held in Inverness, and is a retained firefighter for Lochcarron.

The artist said the symposium would give her a chance to showcase the kind of artwork she was discouraged from doing at art college.
