Lindsey Lavender

Lindsey is a trained architect and for many years painted in her spare time whilst pursuing her professional career. In recent years she has focussed on creating and exhibiting her artwork, whilst continuing her artistic development part-time at Edinburgh College of Art. Lindsey's art encompasses drawing, painting, printing, collage and textiles. Recently painting has been the predominant part of her practice. Through her work, she examines natural and built environments, seeking simple observations that are often overlooked. She is fascinated by and intrigued with the everyday. 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. Lindsey's first exhibition piece 'Forest Series - Untitled' was awarded the ‘Connell & Connell Prize’ at the SSA Open Exhibition 2013. Lindsey is a member of the SSA (Society of Scottish Artists), VAS (Visual Arts Scotland) and AIR (Artists Interaction and Representation)

Marion Thomson

Marion Thomson was born in 1958 and studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1976 - 78, and then at Glasgow University where she was awarded an M.A. in History of Fine Art, Drama , Film and Television. 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.”
