GILLIAN GREER PARK
Gillian is a Fine Art graduate of Glasgow School of Art, having specialised in Drawing and Painting. She was born in Thurso and she moved with her family to Gourock when she was eight years old. She currently lives in Greenock.
Gillian spent a very happy 34 years as a secondary school teacher before retiring to concentrate on her own work, although she continues to teach adult classes locally, purely for enjoyment.
As well as local scenery, she has a long association with the area around the Crinan Canal in Argyllshire which features regularly in her work.
A love of the Scottish Colourist movement informs much of Gillian’s still life work and she has a fondness for painting the reflective and jewel-like qualities of glassware.
Gillian enjoys portraiture and has been inspired by time spent behind the scenes at amateur theatre productions. Figurative pieces show actors ‘in the wings’ where the contrast of dark and light is often very dramatic. She has also completed some commissions using images from live musical events.
Her most recent work is inspired by nature and her own garden. Water lilies, irises and their reflections are a great source of inspiration
