Carina Prigmore (b 1973) was born in Sweden and now lives in Scotland, surrounded by the Cairngorm mountains. Handling of paint comes naturally to Prigmore, and she delights in developing subtle yet energetic techniques that reflect the muted light and unexpected delicacy of the landscape.

 

Her depictions of the Cairngorms in winter have a distinctive edge of softness, seen in barren feathered branches, opaque mist and hues of blue-toned snow. Most of all they bring a sense of quietness, solitude and calm.

 

Carina Prigmore studied conservation biology at Aberdeen University. Her work has featured in the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation “Wildlife Artist of the Year” at the Mall Galleries, London; National Exhibition of Wildlife Art, Liverpool; Art and The Animal Kingdom, Bennington Centre for the Arts, Vermont, USA.
