Scottish artist Christine Woodside RGI RSW (b. 1946) is inspired by the landscape and wildlife around her studio in rural Fife and travels throughout the world. Her richly-textured paintings skilfully combine oil, watercolour, pastel and layers of handmade Japanese paper to create works that burst of the canvas with a joyous life.

Christine Woodside trained at Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen in the 1960s and is an elected member of the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Art. She exhibits regularly in Edinburgh and London.
