Glasgow Artist Allan Richardson – Local City Scenes


Allan Richardson is  much loved and well known local artist, who  can often be seen working on his latest project in the streets of Glasgow. He always takes the time to stop and answer any questions people may have about his work – and usually he has a good story to tell  about the buildings he is capturing on canvas.

Best In The West Certificate

Allan is such a popular Glasgow character  that he is featured in Alasdair Gray’s mural in Hillhead Underground, where he is depicted in his other role – keeping the streets of the West End sparkling clean.

owen bisset fused glass ring Owen Bisset’s wonderful glass jewellery can be found in his beautiful gift boutique in Partick. The attractive shop with its stunning range of well priced and carefully selected jewellery, gifts and home accessories is well situated in this vibrant part of the West End.

The shop looks amazing and has a very friendly atmosphere just crying out for a very enjoyable browse. I spent a wonderful half hour having a look around but that wasn’t enough, when I got the opportunity I popped back in later in the day.

I challenge anyone to leave empty handed – I bought some wonderful, emerald green and turquoise glass earrings designed by Owen and have my eye on the very stylish long chain necklaces in lovely summer hues.
