Jane Angel lived and worked in Edinburgh for many years before coming to the Black Isle just over two years ago. She is inspired by the landscape here to create abstract a paintings using acrylics, mixed media and collage.
Simon Jackson trained at St Martin’s school of Art in London where he worked in Illustration and animation. After moving to Edinburgh In 2006 and worked in watercolour on landscapes, he now lives in Fortrose and makes stencils of birds and landscapes.
Michele Gunn lives and work in Edinburgh, where she studied Art History at the University of Edinburgh (1970). She trained as an Art Therapist at St Albans(Hertfordshire) 1982-3 where the art-based approach to training re-ignited a long-dormant wish to paint. Retired from work in community mental health, Michele focusses on landscape which she sees as the environment on which we are always making our marks. Even a still, empty field shows the presence and action of generations of people.
The late Gordon Gunn was a noted 20th century watercolour painter. He was educated at Glasgow School of Art and was the subject of a book by Neil Rind “A Scottish painter and his world .” published in 1972.
For part of his life Gordon lived in Culdthel, Inverness. His paintings are mainly landscapes, many of them places in Scotland. A favourite was Morar , a community on the west coast. Gordon attached most importance to his ‘Cosmic Paintings’ some of which are included in the exhibition.
