Welcome to the website of Scottish Essays.

Here you can find my essays, articles, stories, ramblings, call 'em what you will. I hope to add a paragraph or two from my favourite books, old and new, and because my day job is painting and drawing portraits of dogs and other pets, I'll include some brief accounts of well-known animals. I hope you like what I do. Please feel free to browse my website or get in touch.
You can reach me at rathleek20@hotmail.co.uk

Some of my paintings and drawings are available as A4 and A3 prints on Facebook. See Pet Portraits UK or Collins Prints
