Art with dance, fantasy, dreams, and light

Ailene Cuthbertson in her studio

Hi, I’m Ailene

I’m following my artist dreams and bringing my imagination to life.

Here, you’ll find my art – timeless, emotive portraits full of light and glamour (the ethereal, magic kind).

See what I do

Currently working on…

A new collection: In the heart of the wild

It all began with a video camera to capture movement and atmosphere. Then came my new floaty silk veils — a metaphor for revealing mysteries and wonder. And finally, coming together with a desire to get off-grid and be immersed in nature.

Explore the behind-the-scenes art adventures and watch ‘making of’ videos on my blog.

Come with me, and let’s escape into
magic and wonder
