I always look forward to these annual events as they bring the artists close to such wonderfully enthusiastic audiences, creating the perfect hub to meet old friends and also to make new ones.


I'm also working towards a number of exhibitions including Paisley Art Institute


Wishing you all the best . . .

In the past year I've spent some time in Lucca and Naples. Whilst there I enjoyed drawing and doing small watercolour studies. Great places to get inspired! Wonderful architecture, beautiful churches and great galleries and museums. Amazing colour, texture and great light – what's not to like about Italy! I look forward to returning some time in the very near future.


I've got a busy year ahead including Open Studios North Fife and Pittenweem Arts Festival.






Morag graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Dundee, Scotland in 1982, where she studied under eminent Scottish artists such as Alberto Morroco, David McLure and Will McLean.


She was awarded a post-graduate year of study which she completed in 1983, winning the John Milne Purvis Prize and the Major Travelling Scholarship, which helped to finance a period of study in Italy.



An award-winning student Morag was the recipient of the John Milne Purvis Prize, the Scottish Education Department Major Travelling Scholarship and the Scottish Arts Council Bursary for Printmaking.


More recently she received the Small Painting Award (RSW), the Adam Award, the William & Mary Armour Award and the Art Hire Framing Award (Paisley Art Institute).
