    Artist Jill Calder: How Technology Works in a Small Town Studio

      Who needs the big city? Not Jill Calder, who lives and works in a seaside house in a fishing village in rural Scotland, about an hour and half drive from the capital city of Edinburgh. "I used to be a city girl, but I know this area very well because my father was born here and this place has always had a place in my heart," she tells me the history when I ask about how she landed in this tiny village so far away from the big city. "When I left art college in 1992, it was... read more
