Belties and Colourful Vases

Fiona Millar lives and works in the Scottish borders and is based at the WASPS Studios in Selkirk. Her instantly recognisable work, that often features flowers and Belties, is highly stylised and has an 1930’s Art Deco feel.

She is a self-taught artist, and originates from a family familiar with art, as her father was an art dealer, and her sisters studied at Art College. Her family, aware of Fiona’s natural talent, encouraged her to develop her own style both in content and application. Fiona produces much sought after work. Her landscapes are influenced by the rolling countryside and hills of Galloway, and often feature her beloved Belties, her Still Lifes composed with colourful vases and flowers.

Spirited Shape and Form

Diana Hand has always loved horses – as a horse owner and rider, Diana finds drawing horses a very natural form of expression and enjoys sharing the movement, spirit, study and form of these beautiful creatures in her work. She was brought up in London and trained at the Ruskin School of Drawing in Oxford and later at Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 2001 with an Honours Degree in Painting.

Her work includes textiles, printmaking, sculpture and more recently her first love – drawing on paper – particularly horses.
