Stenton Gallery - Annette Edgar


{short description of image}

Annette Edgar was born, brought up and educated in the East End of Glasgow. After raising her family and doing a wide variety of jobs, she went on to study Drawing and Painting at Glasgow School of Art where her tutors included David Donaldson, Duncan Shanks, Barbara Rae and Sandy Moffat.
On graduating BA(Hons) in 1980, she went on to teacher training and thereafter worked in various teaching posts to ensure a regular income for her family.
Since 1990 she has been painting full time and has shown extensively in the UK with paintings in many private, corporate, and public connections.
Her influences range from Post Impressionism to American Abstract Expressionism as well as Bomberg, Auerbach, Hitchens and Hodgkins. Annette Edgar draws continually and often works on several paintings concurrently so that one idea is usually developed in different ways within a series. She has a strong ongoing body of work which has resulted in her contributing to many group and solo shows at home and abroad.
