Annette Edgar is one of Scotland’s greatest exponents of the Colourist tradition, not just as a style but a way of life. Her love of people, places and the art of painting are in the DNA of her work. The adventure of travel is an endless source of inspiration and discovery. Edgar delights in expressive brushwork, sensual colour and contrasting form, bringing a sense of joy and erotic charge to her chosen subjects.


“Because I like to use saturated colour I find myself drawn to sunny places. Currently my three favourites are Tuscany, rural Spain and Los Angeles. Hot sunny places, for me, often trigger the beat of music in my head,” rhythms which Edgar skilfully conveys in her work.


Annette Edgar graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1980. She exhibits regularly in Scotland at the RGI, SSA and VAS, throughout the UK and USA.
