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 Art & Design at the University of Wales, Cardiff and has a BSc Honours from the University of Aberdeen in Conservation Biology
