THE work of a Ross-shire artist is being showcased in an intimate venue in the Highland capital.

Elaborate doodles created while recovering from breast cancer treatment and being single for the first time in 30 years are on show at the Inverness gallery.

The exhibition, titled men, A pause by Andrea Johnson, is showing at the Upstairs Gallery in Academy Street throughout December.

The doodles, created with marker and paint pens on watercolour paper, are inspired by stained glass windows, art nouveau and the artist, Gustav Klimt.

The work, which includes hidden dark humour, considers the issues facing menopausal women who may find it is a time of feeling great loss but also brings a sense of freedom.

Ms Johnson has lived in the Highlands since the mid 1990s. After a brief time at Glasgow School of Art, she returnedto the region and now lives in Dingwall.

She is currently working on the second draft of a novel while caring for her mother.

Her exhibition is showing until January 3 in the Upstairs Gallery which is based in the offices of HRI|Munro Architecture.
