We wouldn’t be a hub for the community if we didn’t shine a light on some of the amazing work by the locals. That’s why we’ve partnered with Paisley/Renfrewshire based artists to create The Charity Hub Art Collective. As well as transforming the space into something beautiful, the artists have all very kindly agreed to donate 30% of sales back to Finding Your Feet. Have a look at our art gallery page to see some of the amazing pieces. You’ll also find bios on some of the featured artists below, and information on any upcoming Open Days or Exhibitions.

Dominika Magdalena is an award-winning international artist who creates powerful, channelled, quantum (energy) healing portraits. Each painting is being created while the artist is in a trance, and allows Divine Energy to run through her onto the canvas.
Fiona is an artist who enjoys experimenting using acrylic, oil and watercolour paints as well as working with mixed media and pen & ink. Most of her artwork is inspired by the Scottish coast and countryside, as well as trees, plants, wildlife, and even weeds.
Isobel is a local artist who has been painting and selling work for many years. She is a past member of Paisley Artists and a member of three local art clubs. She works mainly in oils but has also used the mediums of watercolour, pastels and gauche.
Jacqueline enjoys painting in oils. She is now retired and began going to classes 15 years ago to improve techniques and do the thing she has always wanted to do. She loves painting landscapes, people and flowers, with a particular interest in light and colour.
Kirsten is a local wildlife photographer and a practising artist/educator. She has a fine art degree in drawing and painting from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. Her photographic work has been featured on the BBC, STV and National Geographic.
Margaret’s work is influenced by everyday life. Her style and ideas change almost daily and subjects are varied with a focus on detail. She enjoy using nature to paint on, such as wood and rocks, making use of the environment around us. Margaret mainly draws in graphite and paints in acrylic.
Patricia Telfer took up painting on retirement. She has painted in watercolour and acrylic but is currently using water-based oils. She enjoys painting landscapes and seascapes.
There is something about the ever changing lighting conditions, moods and colours of Scotland that inspires Phil. Even when the weather is dull there are often shafts of light from the sky creating luminous colours. All these things make him try to capture what he feels and then paint it with passion.
Sam is a qualified art teacher. He has taught for a number of years in Renfrewshire schools. During the pandemic, Sam continued to paint and experimented with media after being inspired by woodland walks in the local area.
