Victoria Orr Ewing 'Scottish Skies'
28th Mar - 13th Apr 2012
NEW e-catalogue available of the show
Having grown up in a fairly remote part of Scotland, Victoria has always been inspired by wild, untouched, lonely landscapes. She studied painting at The City and Guilds of London Art School, leaving with the Thomas Girtin watercolour prize and has since travelled and painted all over the world. Whilst living in London, she had works accepted for the Discerning Eye by Gillian Ayers, Sir Brinsley Ford and William Bowyer. Her submission for the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition was bought by its chairman of judges, Evelyn Joll. Later whilst living in Scotland she won the Bank of Scotland ‘Banking on Art Prize’. Life then took Victoria to Somerset and Morocco before she settled in Southern Spain ten years ago where she has continued to exhibit successfully, winning the 33rd Gibraltar International Art competition. Victoria had her first solo London exhibition ‘Light on Andalusia’ two years ago with Panter & Hall and has now turned her attention to painting the landscape of her childhood. Her work is represented in many private collections and now plans to return to live and work in the UK.
