She has been an elected member of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW) since 1998 winning many awards and fellowships over the years. She exhibits her work throughout the UK and her work is held in a number of private and corporate collections. Of her work she says “My work is inspired by a love of land and sea and the footprints of human activity found where they meet. Although descriptive of the places I like, my paintings are not documentary but rather concerned with shape, colour and layering of textures. I hope to express something of the feel and atmosphere that I experience there. The painting, once begun, determines its own direction and its own conclusion.”

Rosanne Barr

Rosanne Barr graduated with First Class Honours in 2003 from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee and in the same year exhibited in the British Design Centre, at New Designers 2003. The following year at The Mall Galleries in London, she was one of two young Scots featured by The Society of Designer Craftsmen for 2004 and was awarded a Licentiate of Distinction.

Margaretann Bennett

Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1991, Margaretann Bennett has become one of Scotland's most exciting artists working in mixed media today. Painting across all genres, the surfaces of her canvases are rich with colour and texture, treading a fine line between abstraction and detail. This is most evident in her landscape paintings that depict Scotland as a collection of experiences and events, an evocation of lives lived and time passed, rather than a specific place. Margaretann is a member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour and has been the recipient of a number of art awards including The Armour Award at the RGI in 2006 and the William Bowie Art Award at Paisley Arts Institute.

After graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1971, he spent the last four and a half decades fine-tuning a style that is both lyrical and highly technical, contributing regularly to exhibitions at home and abroad. Rooted in the landscape and buildings of East Scotland, his painting is strongly influenced by the Scottish Colourists and the black and white photography of Ansell Adams, demonstrating a pitch perfect understanding of hue, tone and design.

Francis Boag

Francis Boag's vivid depictions of the rural hinterland and coastline of the North East have made him perhaps one of the best loved contemporary painters working in Scotland.

Patricia Cain

Born in Newcastle and raised in the Lake District Patricia's paintings are a response to her immediate environment and the impact that has on her sense of identity. Increasingly her work reflects the urban environment of Glasgow where she now lives and works. Patricia's route to artistic practice was a circuitous one, abandoning illustration at St Martins in London to train as a lawyer. Having qualified she worked for eight years before moving to Glasgow and qualifying in Scottish law. In 2004 she began work on an interdisciplinary research PhD at the Glasgow School of Art. Since then she has won innumerable prizes, awards and residencies and has had solo exhibitions at a number of public galleries.

Catriona Campbell

Catriona Campbell's artistic education began in infancy, as she puts it "I was taught by a man, who was taught by a man, who was taught by Manet! He was my father Ian Campbell and he taught me to observe". Her instruction continued under David Donaldson at Glasgow School of Art, from whom she acquired a delight in the qualities of paint and "an ambition to make it sing". 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. So I paint them."

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)

Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1988, Kirstie Cohen has built up a strong fan-base with her powerful landscapes. In paintings reminiscent of the great Romantic tradition she depicts the drama of a mountain range or seascape in a way that feels real and specific yet also a product entirely of the imagination; a non-existent place. Kirstie lives and works in Invernesshire (check) exhibiting widely throughout Scotland and England. She has won many awards including the Nancy Graham Memorial Prize and the prestigious Hospitalfield Scholarship.

Jane Cruickshank

Jane Cruikshank is one of the most modern artists working on canvas in Scotland today, taking the medium of oil paint and making it speak in a way that is both contemporary and traditional. Whether a quiet, intimate self-portrait or a poignant still-life, Jane's pieces combine classical lighting techniques, almost reminiscent of the Old Masters, with a thoroughly modern, photographic looking brushwork. The effect is at once precise but also beautifully enigmatic. Jane graduated in 1998 from Grays School of Art, Aberdeen and exhibits throughout Scotland.

She originally studied history of art at Kingston University, London and trained as a ceramic artist before raising her family. It was her return to full-time education at Gray’s which enabled her to explore through her work the constraints women often face not being able to do what they want in life, not being able to put themselves first and being caught up in the ‘machinery of life’. Since studying at Gray’s Lisette has won the prestigious David Gordon Memorial Trust Award from the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA),s as well as being awarded the John Kinross Scholarship (also by the RSA) which enabled her to travel to Florence to experience the city’s classical art and architecture.

Helen Denerley

My sculptures are made from scrap metal using relics of the horse-drawn day of agriculture, alongside discarded modern machinery. Some of the parts have been made by blacksmiths and used to farm the land until they are worn out. In Strathdon I am surrounded by life, people, plants animals and birds all living within the cycle of the changing seasons. This combination of material and subject becomes my sculpture, breathing new life into old metal.

A graduate of Glasgow School of Art in 1974, Margaret combines teaching and painting in her career, travelling extensively throughout America and Europe. Her experiences abroad are reflected in her Scottish landscapes, as she says "Painting is not about copying but exaggerating it's line, composition and colours. My teaching takes me all over the world, which has broadened my perspective on landscapes, but also makes me appreciate my own country and what scope Scotland has to offer in subject matter for artists." Renowned for her pastel painting, Margaret is a member of the Portrait Society of America, featuring regularly in the International Artist magazine.

Steven Higginson

Steven was born in Dumfries, Scotland, in 1982. Growing up, Steven often sketched the iconic images from album covers and music books and these influences have stayed with him and can be seen in the use of pop photography in his contemporary still lifes. Having won various national competitions and prizes for his work, Steven followed his inevitable path in art, choosing to study at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee in part due to the art school's traditional approach to teaching painting. He was awarded The Aiden Threlfall Traveling Scholarship from the Goldsmith's Company in London in 2004, the year he graduated. He used the scholarship to spend time in Paris, Venice, Rome and Madrid studying works of the old masters, namely Velazquez, Caravaggio and Manet.

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.

The work has been described as having a sense of melancholy calm that draws the viewer in. It explores, often through a restricted palette, the juxtaposition of manmade and natural as well as rhythm, and the play of light and shade, often on the seemingly ordinary.

Charles MacQueen

“Every painting I do is related to the last one. It may be a continuation of the last one or a reaction to it. When I grow tired of harmony I long for discord. Colour and surface texture are very important elements in my painting.” Charles MacQueen doesn’t just seek to present us with an image, he seeks to present us with an experience. Influenced by the American philosopher John Dewey, he believes that paintings are like mirrors; not only do they help us to appreciate pattern, shape, form, line and colour they also help us to see ourselves. For Charles the role of the artist is to create these ‘magic mirrors’ with his trips to Morocco and Tunisia providing the high contrast visual references around which the work is formed.

Born on the south side of Glasgow in 1961, Robert trained as an upholsterer before attending art college in the mid 1980's. 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."

His work has been chosen to exhibit at the BP Portrait Award, The Threadneedle Prize for Figurative Art and the Ruth Borchard Self portrait prize, and he was a semi finalist in the SKY Portrait Artist of the Year 2014 . His painting of the figure is as much a celebration of the medium of oil painting as an exploration of the human form. For Alan, painting is like a performance, a process that he likes viewers to be reminded of when they look at his canvases. His work is loaded with expressive brushwork that exhibits a perfect balance of control, technical ability and painterly improvisation.

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.

He worked for many years as a teacher and attained the position of Head of Art at Arbroath Academy. Now retired from teaching, Joe is concentrating on painting from his home and studio in Montrose. The inspiration for my work comes almost exclusively from the coastal and rural environment around my home town of Montrose. The paintings reflect a dual interest. On one hand they are portrayals of a very distinctive and visually rich landscape with its fishing stations, small boats, farm implements and sheds. Equally, the paintings are an exploration of colour, tone, shape and line that are brought together in a carefully balanced composition.

Calum Stevenson

Calum Stevenson is a Scottish painter attending Glasgow School of Art studying for a Masters Degree in Painting. Calum graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2019. His work is primarily inspired by his surroundings and experiences growing up in and around the area of Cumbernauld. Artist’s statement “Being in Cumbernauld throughout my life I have admired the grim beauty of brutalist architecture. When I was a child, I became unwell on a family holiday that left me hooked up to an IV line in a foreign hospital. It is since that experience that I have been fascinated by my fear of medical practice that has become more of a phobic obsession. I combine my medical memories with childhood surroundings as I look back on the place that I have a strong yet unappreciated connection with. My works often result in an almost dream-like environment that plays on Cumbernauld’s original aim to be the city of the future.”

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."

Allison Weightman

Allison lives and works in a remote cottage in the highlands where for many years she developed her own style and techniques for building and firing clay. When her youngest son reached school age she decided to attend university studying ceramics at Edinburgh College of Art. For four years she combined studying full-time in the capital with family life in the highlands. Allison works in clay, firing at different temperatures to create pieces of raku, porcelain and stoneware ceramics. Her kilns are fired by bottle gas which is transported by boat across a loch to her home. Her work is both physically and technically challenging - the remoteness of her studio adds to the difficulty.

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.

Christine Woodside

Christine was born in Aberdeen in 1946 and studied at Gray's School of Art, Aberdeen in the early sixties. Originally a watercolourist, Christine expanded her palette to include acrylics. She usually begins a work by altering the structural surface which she is to paint by using hand made paper. She builds up areas using PVA which can then be scored into and painted over. Christine draws with her brush and achieves her powerful colours with acrylic inks combined with washes of watercolour.

Georgie Young

Georgie Young is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art and paints mainly contemporary Scottish landscapes. Her work aims to evoke a feeling and capture a sense of place, an atmosphere or an unexpected detail rather than reproduce a direct likeness. The paintings are a product of observation, interpretation and improvisation; the original observation is processed, re-examined and the essence abstracted. Her work is an attempt to reveal the unexpected beauty of unremarked places, the interplay of light, time, weather and season on everyday landscape, and the presence and influence of the human on the physical environment.
