Ailsa Brims – artist from Gosport, Hampshire. 

I am interested in places that are neither here nor there, edges, liminal spaces, and how we are so rarely truly present – we rush past without being mindful of where we are….

My work uses painting, photography, digital art and 3D work to express feelings,  plus my love of abstract shapes. I see pictures everywhere and it is very satisfying to be able to capture what I see and share them. Working in several styles (street photography, abstract and mindful photography, watercolours, acrylics, collage, drawing or digital art) I use any medium that conveys what I want to say.


  • 17-26 August I will be exhibiting some of my watercolour paintings at Yellow Edge Gallery, Gosport, as part of a group Hampshire Open Studios exhibition.    
  • 4 September – I am giving a talk to Peninsular Artists about “Creative watercolour” – 7.30pm St Marys Parish Centre, Alverstoke, £5 on the door. 
  • 10 -21 September – I will be exhibiting a new series of abstract watercolours at Yellow Edge again, as part of the Peninsular Artists Annual Group exhibition (I’ll be talking about these in my talk on 4th September).
