Kirsty Anderson

This is the first appearance at Pittenweem Arts Festival for Edinburgh-based textile artist and ceramicist Kirsty Anderson. She will be exhibiting her Scottish deer wall hangings as well as contemporary, landscape-inspired, hand-thrown stoneware.

Pauline Austin

I look forward to sharing my new work at the Festival this year. I usually work in acrylics and oils but have experimented with inks and watercolour with a new, abstract take on subjects. I love to paint treescapes showing mood through colour and how this works through the seasons.

I’m heading into my final year of a music degree at Edinburgh University but have maintained an interest in the visual arts, recently specialising in kinetic art. This year’s show contains a variety of suspended mobiles and kinetic sculptures, all animating pieces of sea glass found on local beaches.

I am a final-year student at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. Over the year I have explored seasonal change in a series of coloured etchings that were inspired by the remaining pine trees of St. Michael’s Wood between Leuchars and Dundee.

Ian Boyter

Ian Boyter began exhibiting paintings in 1974 with a one-man show in the Libra Gallery St Monans while working as a graphic designer with the National Trust For Scotland. With roots in Scotland's North-west Highlands and in the East Neuk of Fife, his work is inspired by both of Scotland's coasts.

Allan Black’s paintings try to capture the ever-changing light and colour of the Scottish landscape.  The constantly changing sky tends to be the catalyst for the contrasting angles of cityscapes, open seascapes of the West coast and the harbours of the East Neuk.

Sydney Clare Checkland

What is photographed is secret. Views invisible to the naked eye are explored. These tiny worlds have strange beauty, resonate with the more visible world and yet are untouchable. The work is not what it seems, landscapes are not real, dusk is not dusk.

Thomas Cameron

Previous Bursary Award winner and regular exhibitor, Thomas Cameron has developed a distinctly unique approach to painting. Known mostly for urban landscapes, he has also explored botanics, portraiture, interiors and more. Thomas has won fourteen awards for his painting, and is included in many public and private collections across the world.

Heather Cunningham

The richness and intensity of colour in the East Neuk has always been a joy to paint. This year our new surroundings offer more soft and subtle tones of the countryside, with glimpses of the coast and sea.

Derek Collins

Derek Collins

My art is an extension of the paint effects I have been doing most of my life. I love the way some paints don’t want to be together and create amazing effects then I either set it on fire or use a blow lamp then finish it off with a coat of resin you just want to touch.
