MHAIRI McGREGOR R.S.W.
Born in 1971, Mhairi McGregor studied at Glasgow School of Art gaining a BA (Hons) in Fine Art and while there she received a number of awards. After graduating in 1993 she spent some time painting in Australia and has also painted in Arizona, New Mexico and Canada as well as in the United Kingdom. She has had various exhibitions, mainly in Scotland until quite recently. Mhairi's emotional response to subjects comes through in her paintings. Initial sketches are developed into more abstract works and her landscapes evoke a sense of place affected by a rich, fluid impasto paint surface.
