Pen & Ink drawings
Pen & ink drawings are the foundations of 'Fine Lines Art'.
Myra had been drawing local scenes of Lancaster as a hobby for several years, when in 1999 she was made redundant from her job in a Lancaster textile company.
Having dreamed of starting a small business to sell her drawings, it was the push she needed to put the idea into practice! The name 'Fine Lines' had been 'dreamed up' a few months previously whilst doodling during phone calls at work! (Very 'fine lines' being the basis of all of Myra's drawings).
Myra teamed up with her badminton partner Jane and, with help from Jane's husband Tim, they set about printing some calendars, cards etc..
Just before Christmas 1999 they rented a space in Marketgate Shopping Centre in Lancaster to see if their products would sell. They were very well received so the next step was to try to get them into retail outlets in Lancaster and the Lake District.
Jane and Myra now sell to retail outlets throughout Lancashire, Cumbria and Yorkshire. As you will see from this website, their range has expanded into many original 'crafty' items!
They can still usually be found selling their calendars etc. in Marketgate Shopping Centre, Lancaster on the run up to Christmas.
