“With love for you, by Billiedoo.
I’m Alison. In 2010, I was on holiday in Austria and loved the handwritten hearts that hung on the doors of our hotel. I came home and wanted something similar for our home. I could find nothing that was quite right, so I decided to make my own. A round of painting, sanding, writing, varnishing and decorating (all by hand) later, my heart sign was complete and hung up with love.
I then thought of all the occasions in life where it would be lovely to give or receive a heart with a special handwritten message on it – weddings, a ‘big’ birthday or special anniversary, the birth of a baby or perhaps a housewarming. Then there are the times when maybe you just want to say ‘thank you’ or ‘you’re special’.
As all my hearts are handwritten, you can have your heart say exactly what you want. They’re the perfect gift to give when you don’t know what to give! For more examples of what I do, please visit my website or facebook page. Best of all, get in touch by email or phone and find out what Billiedoo can do for you.”
Mosaic mirrors, wall decor, yard art, garden features, murals, back splashes, sculpture – my quirky mosaics made of recycled materials, including ceramic and glass, and are all one of a kind. My mosaic slates make ideal gifts; small and affordable for friends or family, maybe a keen gardener, a friend with a porch, or a cherished partner… or just for you.
Located at Upper Dalchonzie Cottage, with my workshop in down the drive, I am open by appointment, or when I have my “Studio Open” sign out. Visitors are most welcome.

Rossal, The Ross, Comrie, Perthshire PH6 2JU.
Professional wildlife & landscape artist working mostly in oils.
Since childhood I’ve been an enthusiast of the natural world and my paintings are an expression of this. I aim to create stimulating visual images that originate from my day-to-day experiences and knowledge of the countryside around me. My methods involve close attention to composition, animal behaviour, habitat detail and lighting, aiming to create an accurate and yet artistic rendition of subjects. Above all else I favour compositional ideas where the effects of lighting and the drama of weather conditions play a key role, striving to capture those wildlife encounters made all the more “magical” by the elements.
Studio visits are welcome by appointment
