Michael Dawson

Michael Dawson produces vibrant works on paper, wood, mdf and canvas in an expressionist style. Intense and energetic, rich in vivid colour and heavily covered in text, stencils and bursts of texture, the works are primarily concerned with a universal experience of dichotomies, wealth vs poverty, primitive vs sophisticated, integration vs segregation, justice vs injustice and inner vs outer experience.

Anna Sztromwasser Illustrations

After graduating in archaeology I found myself wanting to draw more than dig. I followed this path, motivated by observing animals and their intriguing behaviour - they are just so charming to illustrate.

Claire Williamson

"Painting outside, often in wind and rain helps me paint intuitively and spontaneously. There is always a sense of urgency to try and capture something before it disappears. When I paint, everything else in life is forgotten about and all that matters is how I can reveal the world I’m in at that moment. When I feel I have achieved this it is magical."

Fraser Haston

Colour is life. Life should be colourful! Never having been a very satisfied lot, artists have long seen colour as something to be striven for - to be used (and quite often abused) to convey life at its most expressive and ts most vibrant. This is the philosophy of artist Fraser Haston.

Pam McKenzie

Originally from Lancashire, Pam McKenzie has made Scotland her home for the past 30 years. After gaining a BA Hons in Fine Art studying painting and printmaking, Pam has finally managed in the last couple of years to spend more time in my studio developing her unique style of painting.
"I have exhibited locally in East Lothian, and in Edinburgh and the Borders. I'm lucky enough to live in a beautiful part of the country, dividing my time between Edinburgh and North Berwick which gives me plenty of inspiration. I love the big open skies and the ever changing landscape of the sea, and love to add wildflowers and grasses to my paintings wherever I can.
I don't very often put figures into my paintings, preferring to add life to them with birds. I like landscapes where you can imagine yourself being, and adding figures will place the viewer in a particular place. I think we would all choose a different spot to sit in!"
