Sharon Reid

Sharon was born and grew up in Scotland. She has a background in Education and “ The Arts” in its widest sense. While surviving from cancer in 2010, she initially turned to photography as a distraction. Seven years on and Sharon admits the tough times have fed her creativity and that her work has become an all-consuming passion.

Her striking images cover every aspect of life, the dark and the light, capturing mood and feeling that few other photographic artists can achieve.

Fife has been a particular inspiration for her, where she has spent a great deal of time recording and reworking her observations of life, especially in its beaches and pubs.

“ Woe and humour, love and loss, innocence and consciousness, politics and people, sexuality and strength, sensuality, frailty and age… all draw me to them as subjects”, admits Sharon “ and I hope I add something to people’s thoughts on them “.

Sharon lives in Caithness.

Siv MacArthur

Born and raised in a small west coast town in Finland, Siv was in her twenties when she moved to Scotland with her Scots husband.

Her love of drawing and painting started at an early age and for the past 10 years she has worked full time on her art. Siv is skilled in a range of mediums including watercolour and acrylic but it is her mixed media work that excites her and us.

Mostly semi-abstract paintings, her art is inspired by people, places and experiences in Scotland and her native Finland, within which she conveys mood with the use of vibrant colours to uplift and stimulate , and muted or monochrome contrasts to calm and relax.

For years, her work has been well received in galleries and open exhibitions around the country including a very successful run at the Airport Gallery in Edinburgh. Her work can also be seen at the historic Cambo Estate near St Andrews. Other gallery locations where she has exhibited are Birmingham, Crieff, Dunkeld, Ceres, and Glasgow.

Siv is a strong advocate for developing and promoting local art and artists and exhibits with local art groups across Fife.

She is a regular exhibitor at the Open Studios North Fife and contributes to The Secret Art Show for the MS Trust, Tayside Healthcare and Dunkeld Cathedral Charity Exhibitions. Her works appear in public and private collections

Siv lives in Cupar.

 

Donald MacKenzie

Donald was born and grew up on the Great Glen Cattle Ranch in the Highlands of Scotland, near the foot of Ben Nevis, Scotland’s highest mountain.

For Donald, photography is a vehicle through which to convey and connect with the places he has lived and visited. He is best known for his powerful and atmospheric black and white images. His main artistic influence is the great American photographer and environmentalist Ansel Adams who developed the Zone System to produce depth and clarity in photographs.

A well-travelled photographer, in 2016 Donald spent a month working in Yosemite in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains, where he experienced first-hand the landscape of Ansel.

He lives in Glenfarg, Perthshire.

Lena Ferrier

Lena is a textile artist.

Her love of drawing and crafting started at an early age and growing up in a Kilmany farming family was an ideal environment to develop her creative talents.

Her mother, grandmother and aunt introduced and encouraged her to develop her skills in fine needlework. She recalls the beauty and feel of the various fabrics used to make many of her own clothes which helps explain her love of textiles to this day.

Lena includes a mix of techniques, fabric paints, felting, embroidery and applique in her work.

On leaving school, she went to Duncan of Johnstone School of Art but after a year decided to pursue other interests. However, she continued creating in her spare time and having been inspired by an embroidery exhibition in the 1980s she went on to complete a City and Guilds to develop further her technique and design work.

This subsequently led to forming Broderie Alba with other C & G students and together they held various exhibitions.

In 2016, Broderie Alba exhibited at the Iona Gallery in Kingussie and members are currently creating work for next year’s exhibition. The group also hold occasional workshops in Newburgh.

Lena lives in Cupar.

 

Jean Drysdale

Jean is a sculptural artist specialising in felts. Attracted by the great history, breadth and the depth of the felt making tradition, Jean works with unspun sheep’s wool fibre from British and European rare breeds to fine Australian merino, using her wide ranging and ever evolving techniques within the felting process to bond the wool with silks and other natural fibres.

Blending traditional wet felting and contemporary hand dyeing techniques to achieve contrasting colours which migrate during the process, Jean creates stunning sculptural objects, wall pieces and wearable items.

Jean has exhibited her work in various locations and galleries within the UK and delivers demonstrations. She is a member of the International Feltmakers Association, and is a founder member and Chair of the York Feltmakers Association since 2012.

She lives in York, England.

Vicky Coull

Trained as a technical illustrator in London, drawing jet engines for Rolls Royce, and working as a technical manuals designer with NCR bank machines in Scotland, has provided an excellent foundation for Vicky’s stunning artwork.

She is inspired by the vibrant colours in the ever changing landscape of the Scottish countryside, creating in water colour, mixed media, acrylic and collage; incorporating fabric and silk thread to give a feeling of texture. Vicky’s work is never an absolute copy but rather emerges from her mind’s eye after she has seen an image.

A highly regarded and busy artist, Vicky is fully committed to her local community, taking an active part in local groups and events including her local art club.

A popular artist, Vicky has exhibited widely and presents work annually in Cupar and through Open Studios North Fife
