Claire Gillie-Thompson has been producing expressive pieces of art for over 20 years.
Originally from Ross-Shire in the Highlands Claire moved to Edinburgh & is a graduate in drawing & painting from ECA.
Claire's early work was evoked by memories of growing up next to the Cromarty Firth.
After a very successful degree show she won the RSA Sir Robin Philipson award for painting (2001) & The Royal Bank of Scotland purchase prize.
Claire has exhibited in galleries around Britain, but then took some time away from the artworld to travel the world & start a family.
More recent work has explored the relationship of colour & light produced in an abstract manner & she is currently working on a series inspired by the 'illuminated' winter light over the Pentland hills.
