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!"
