Since graduation in the late 60's Catriona has delighted many with her paintings of people and animals and the way they interact. "I like the shapes and colours they make and the way they behave with one another. I like the spaces in between them and the possibilities of what might happen in those negative spaces.

Sam Cartman

Sam Cartman lives and works in Dumfries & Galloway. Originally from Shropshire, he completed a Fine Art Degree in Carlisle before moving to Glasgow for eight years. His paintings are a response to being in the landscape: they are shaped by the experience of being in a certain place at a certain time and the memory of this. These experiences are the basis for his involvement with the paint, and from then on, his interaction with the paint takes over. The process allows him to show in painting, something of the place he is in or has been in. There is a poetic sparseness to Cartman's paintings of wide open spaces, in the skies or the sculpted buildings which look as if they have been there for all time. (Jan Patience, The Glasgow Herald)

John Glynn

Born in Plymouth in 1964, John was interested in painting and drawing since childhood. His ambition to be an artist was thwarted by the tragic death of his father when he was thirteen. John turned down a place at Plymouth School of Art choosing instead to go out to work to contribute to the family finances. He kept painting and drawing in his spare time producing abstract and surreal work which was exhibited in the Plymouth area and with which he had some success. For some years he designed sea life artwork that was reproduced in print. This gave him the confidence (and income) to risk painting full time. He moved to Banff in Scotland in 2007 where the peace and serenity of the coastal villages inspired him to produce seemingly simple line drawings of the houses and harbours. These drawings have become his signature style and are exhibited in galleries across Scotland.

Catherine Imhof-Cardinal

Catherine Imhof-Cardinal is a Swiss-French artist living near Aberdeen in Scotland. She began her career in Aix-en-Provence. Catherine\'s work is informed by a strongly developed sense of colour, often in daring and unusual composition of a figurative or semi-abstract nature. Her approach to composition is without preconception; each work gradually emerges from a series of lines thrown onto the sheet, the subject and composition suggesting themselves through the work process. In this way, impressions gathered on travels and from life in general re-emerge in the paintings, not as factual representations but as images imbued with the feeling of places and events.

Since then he has gained recognition for his mixed media works depicting enigmatic scenes often at the edges of human inhabitation. "Many of my paintings are full of symbols or images relating to events, thoughts, ideas from my life, but I am not going to bore the viewer with such details. The viewer will bring all of their own memories with them, and will either connect in some way with what they see or they will not. I like mystery, I do not want everything explained to me, I like to discover for myself."

Maralyn Reed-Wood

Maralyn's affair with ceramics began at school in Kirkcudbright where the Higher Art class worked with the Lochhead Pottery. She studied art in Essex making pots in a studio converted from an air-raid shelter. After becoming a teacher, Maralyn worked as an Art Therapist in an epilepsy hospital, setting up her own studio simultaneously. At a time when figures were most unacceptable in the art world, she worked against the trend. Her figures were accepted by the Triennialle de la Porcelain, Nyon, Switzerland, the 'porcelain capital' of Europe. This was followed by The International Porcelain Exhibition at the Scottish Gallery and an Arts Council Award. Illness brought her career to an abrupt halt, and she re-invented herself making small ceramic pieces which sold internationally for the next 15 years, winning awards and commendations. She has finally returned to her figurative roots, and her porcelain figures sell in galleries throughout Scotland. She has exhibited with the RSA and The RGI and has been short-listed on four occasions for figurative porcelain awards.

From 1981- 99 Marion worked as a Costume Designer in theatre , film and television while continuing to paint. Inspired by the Scottish landscape she says For as long as I can remember, the Outer Hebrides and the western seaboard of Scotland have been a source of inspiration and delight to me. The unique qualities of that landscape - its remoteness, its sense of rugged endurance contrasted with the delicacy of certain shorelines, the physical isolation of the people and their homes - all create a powerful drama that draws me back again and again.”

Peter White

Born in Ayrshire in 1959, Peter studied at Edinburgh College of Art in the early 1980's. He moved to Ullapool in North West Scotland in 1994 where he dedicates his life to painting. He has exhibited widely across Scotland and is a regular contributor to the annual Royal Glasgow Institute and Royal Scottish Academy exhibitions. Peter's distinct and enigmatic work provides a welcome opportunity for stillness and contemplation. His technique of combining oil, acrylic and wax on board is intensive and intricate, creating exquisite surfaces that beg closer inspection. Rough texture is created by layering paint and wax. His palette and composition are highly controlled, focused on form and subtle use of colour that convey a mood of meditative calm.
