Carol Dewart

Carol Dewart's exhibition, Fifty Shades of Glasgow, has sold 21 paintings in the first week and we are absolutley delighted for her well-deserved success.  Here's a little more about this lovely artist.

Carol was born in Scotland in 1957.  She lives in Cardross, Argyll/Bute and as a landscape painter, it is from this ever-changing landscape that she takes her inspiration.

She attained a BA(Hons) in Drawing and Painting from Glasgow School of Art in 1981 and was the winner of the Emmy Sachs Award and the John and Mabel Craig Award. During her Post Graduate year at G.S.A in 1982 under the tutelage of renowned painters, David Donaldson, James Robertson and Geoff Squires, she was awarded a travelling scholarship.

Carol also studied Embroidery and Weaving for one year and this has had a major influence on her work. By integrating the use of various mediums, textiles and stitch work, her paintings strive to give a more textural observation of the landscape.

The Glasgow paintings are executed in watercolour and gouache and are inspired by the many years spent in Glasgow during her student days.

She is an artist member of the Paisley Art Institute and the Glasgow Society of Women Artists.

We have two weeks remaining and 29 paintings available still.  Each as gorgeous as the next.
