Astrid Weigel

Very exciting to get to know the work of artist Astrid Weigel. Douglas shot her home in Ayrshire for a recent feature in Your Home magazine. It was a tired 1970’s villa with oodles of potential, which Astrid and her husband have improved beautifully. Visit her website and shop to see her wonderful, original art […]
