Our Community Wall

The wall was drawn and painted by the artist Jamie MacKay, who is a freelance, Edinburgh-based illustrator. He finds inspiration from humour, wildlife and popular culture. He spent hours drawing and then painting the members of our community.

To view his other work please check out his Instagram ➡ @jamiemackay_illustration

The creation of this wall was made possible by funding from Currie and Balerno Rotary Club and Lothian Young Enterprise.
