A little bit about me
For as long as she can remember she has loved to paint & draw and during her High School education, her preference leaned towards figure drawing. She thrived on the challenge of trying to achieve a true likeness of her subjects and this is something she still very much enjoys today, particularly working in graphite, pastels and oils.
At the end of 2005, Seonaid made a major life changing decision, after over 14 years in the Aviation Industry, she resigned from her managerial post to follow her dream of a career in art.
Since then she has worked mostly to commission with new orders coming in all the time and to date her commission book remains full.
As a self-taught artist much of what she has learned is down to home study, trial and error, a lot of experimenting (which she says can be frustrating and fun!) but mostly Seonaid is driven by her in-built desire to create.
She says "The financial gain is always nice, but the best reward is seeing someone's eyes light up when they receive their artwork. Knowing that just one person enjoys what I create is an amazing feeling and one that never seems to ebb. I still have to pinch myself that I am finally living the dream! "
Winner of the "People's Choice" Award at the 2012 Gordon Art Exhibition in Aberdeenshire, Seonaid not only receives commissions in the UK but has sold work in the USA, Canada, Germany, New Zealand and Australia.
