Stenton Gallery
Marie Scott

Born in Kirkwall, Orkney, Marie Scott studied in Aberdeen under the Scottish painter, William Burns.
She now lives on a farm steading in East Lothian, close to the sea. Both land and sea are major influences on her work. "Painting to me is an emotional reaction to what I see around me. I hope that through colour, texture and form, the feelings I have about the work are conveyed to the viewer."
