With an Honours Degree in Fine Art from Grays School of Art, Robert Gordons University, Aberdeen, Gwen shows her work extensively throughout Scotland in both solo and collective exhibitions. She has her work both in public and private collections.
Working on her art, full time at her studio gallery in the Highlands of Scotland, she also runs an extensive program of day workshops and short courses in the full range of art, bookbinding and printmaking techniques.
‘Because my discipline within fine art is printmaking, I naturally use a lot of printmaking techniques in my work, but I also incorporate paint and collage. My subject matter varies as I like to keep my work lively, fresh and interesting. I often work in a minimalist and monochromatic way, though strong colour and form are more integral to my overall approach. While dimensions may vary from almost miniature to expansive canvases, surface texture and mark making are always key.
I aspire to assemble a body of work which is harmoniously pleasing to the eye, engaging to the viewer, bringing with it a moment of sensory stimulation, a quiet calm and a colourful interlude to the grey bustle of the every day
