Nerine Tassie

Nerine graduated with a degree in Fine Art from Edinburgh College of Art in 2002. She completed postgraduate studies in teacher training and enjoyed a career teaching Art and Design before entering and winning The Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2015. Since then she's dedicated more time to painting from her studio in Fife where she lives with her husband and young family. Of her work she says "Natural spaces and forms provide the basis and inspiration for my work; in particular the textures found within the natural world both land and sea. I experiment with a wide range of materials in order to constantly develop new experiences within each painting so each piece takes on its own developing surface and object quality."
