Full of Light

Glasgow born artist Laura Harrison has been one of the shining lights of our Summer exhibition.  One of her paintings graced the cover of our Summer catalogue (see our first 'Welcome' post) and was snapped up immediately.  In the following three weeks we have continued to sell her still lifes and landscapes. They are optimistic, full of light and life, and they are capturing peoples' imaginations. 


A student in the 1960s at Glasgow School of Art, Laura Harrison studied under David Donaldson, one of Scotland's best and arguably most underrated artists of the 20th century.  With a strong basis in drawing and painting, her rich and expressive paintings take everyday subject matter, and through them she uses the paint to express herself as a true artist feels compelled to.

As she is in demand, we have had to ask her for more!  These three beauties are some of her newest work.  And the paint's still wet!  Well, almost.

And yes, for those who know me, Laura Harrison is my mum.  Growing up around her paintings, the sights and smells emerging from the studio got into my blood and inspired me to always want to be around great art, artists and most importantly, people being bold enough to express themselves for all the world to see.

Thanks for reading!
