A Wallyford artist ensured her home was looking ‘spooktacular’ for Hallowe’en.

Kerrie Buchanan, 37, of Fa’side Avenue South, has created an eye-catching artwork in her window showing Disney’s villains – The Evil Queen in Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty and Ursula from The Little Mermaid.

A keen art student while at Preston Lodge High School in Prestonpans, Kerrie comes from an artistic family.

She recalled her mum decorating her childhood room with Disney murals and other murals for friends’ living rooms and bathrooms.

While working at Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, Kerrie was asked to come up with a design for their windows and, using acrylic paint, transformed them with trees and a stag, which led to requests from other shops.

Kerrie – who is now a manager for outdoor clothing and footwear company Regatta – has started her own weekend art enterprise, Buchanan Brushworks, designing and painting window art for homes and shops whatever the season or occasion, as well as murals.

She has created other Hallowe’en window display another house in Wallyford and one in North Berwick.

Her recent work can also been seen at the new Dog Den day care next to the Pinkie Farm Convenience Store on Moray Way, Musselburgh, where she has painted a mural inside the premises.

During the Covid-19 lockdown, she adorned the window of her home with a Disney castle in support of the NHS.

Kerrie said: "I started painting for fun as it was an unusual thing to do.

"Art has always been a big part of my life and I love painting for other people. It has always been a dream of mine to become an artist by trade.

"I am very excited that my work is locally appreciated and could not do it without the help of friends and family."
