Artist travels to Outer Hebrides to help keep the Church buildings open on Mull

My name is Aska Marzec. I have lived and painted Scottish landscapes for 16 years now on the stunning Isle of Mull. My dream is to see and paint other Scottish Islands also.

 Last year I hired a bike and a buggy for my tent. Cycled from Barra to North Uist in September. Stayed and painted from a tent.

This August 4th – 14th planning to see and paint en plein air on Lewis and Harris. 

It’s a little further so after packing my painting gear, I’m going by car. Taking my tent also.

My intention is to connect with the landscape, my inner self, sketch and jot ideas.

To fundraise and create awareness of this important cause. 

Art is a way of living for me. Through painting I would like to help keep Church buildings open on Mull. 

Church is not just a building, it’s a Community. 

Percentage of sales from the artwork will be donated to this cause.

I am particularly keen to help raise funds to help keep the Torosay Church building open in Craignure. It is owned by the Church of Scotland who currently hold worship each week. Others also use it for worship including a Roman Catholic congregation. Pilgrims heading to Iona. More people need to get active in caring for and using the building whether for worship or other activities.

If you have ideas for an event or meeting you would like to hold in this or other North Mull church buildings please contact Rev Liz Gibson
