Thank you for showing an interest in my artwork.
I am a self-taught late-starter and a member of East Neuk Open Studios.
I work in Watercolours,
Sparrow on a Bird Feeder, Watercolours, Moti Black 2020
I work in Pumpkins,
Pittenweem West Shore, Pumpkin Carving, Moti Black 2019
And I work in Photoshop.

I am inspired by flowers from my garden,

I am inspired by the beautiful Firth of Forth on my doorstep,
Isle of May with Puffins, Watercolour, Moti Black, 2019
And I am inspired by cats, as there is usually a cat between me and the piece I am working on.

What am I doing now?
During lockdown, I have been focusing more on my writing than my art, but have now picked up my paints again.
I am currently working on my Fifty Firth of Forth Scenes from Fife collection, growing pumpkins for the next pumpkin carving season, and playing around with photoshop.
As my novel is nearly finished, I will soon start creating some artwork inspired by the story.
How to buy MotiBlack Art
I usually exhibit in Pittenweem as part of East Neuk Open Studios. At the moment, exhibiting is on hold due to Covid-19, but I have used that time to update my RedBubble Accounts:
My Red Bubble Shop (Moti Black)
For my artwork.
A Redbubble shop where I photoshop all the products (The Pitted Ant)
This account is for my close family and myself. They give me drawings and I photoshop them into a large range of colourful products.

Another RedBubble Shop where I have donated images to raise money for The West Braes Project!
Lots of cartoon dolphins and photos of Pittenweem.
