|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."
