Bruntsfield Flâneur

Ok, Bruntsfield. Consider yourself observed for the next few months. My themes for my 100 days of stuff seem to focus on a) zillions of sketches of Lottie watching various movies and b) my neck of the woods. It’s not that surprising. This is what my life is made of.

I’m pleased with the offering above. It was inspired by a terrific little outing I had with my daughter, one in which she didn’t kick off, scream, flail, shriek, run or any of the other embarrassing behaviours that can turn a two year old into an unrecognisable monster. I love her, from the tip of her tiny baby ties to the top of her pretty little head. It’s the tantrums. What storms – quick and frightening. 

The other story is an observation. I saw two people, clearly not together and clearly unattached. Or I’m guessing at the last bit, just reading their behaviour. They looked a bit interested in the other and in the 30 seconds that I caught them from out of the corner of my eye, they continued to pretend to not see the other. Oh human nature. You are a funny thing. How many opportunities are missed out of fear.

The end.


I am an artist living and working in a rather gorgeous city. My art can be purchased in various shops throughout the city as well as from my online shop. Most of my work is for commission, private and corporate. I am the founder of Crash Course in Art History Limited.

  1. Hello Cassandra 🙂
    I interviewed you at the Newcastle Maker Faire, in about 2009

    I watched the video for the first time in years, and thought I’d look to see what you are up to.

    I used to live in Edinburgh, I half liked it but found it cold….very lonely.

    So I thought I’d send you a message to wish you well, and to let you know that I really like your work, I think you’re talented.

    I hope I find you well xxx


    1. The thing you need in order to endure Edinburgh weather is a low expectation. That way, when it turns out half decent, you’re pleasantly surprised.
      Thank you for your kind words about my artwork. I love making it and it’s nice to know people enjoy what I make.
      Maker Faire was such a hoot and I imagine it’s growing from strength to strength. Newcastle is a fun and exciting city and will always have a place in my heart.
      And yes, I do remember that interview. I’m certain I was nervous for it. Camera shy and all that.
      Here’s to the very best for you and your future endeavours in 2016!


      1. I was shy doing it 🙂

        I tried to confirm that I wanted to see replies to this comment, but it won’t let me for some reason.

        Yes I do like your artwork, I think you’re very good at it.
        Best wishes to you too 🙂
