Aileen Grant graduated Dip TP from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and worked as a town planner for a number of years. In 2007 she reduced her working hours in order to develop her drawing and painting and completed several courses at Leith School of Art. Since May 2013 she has been working full-time as an artist from her studio in Art’s Complex in Edinburgh.
Aileen is a keen hillwalker and her work focuses on landscapes and seascapes, informed by observations and sketching in the open air. She seeks to capture the feel of a place in black and white images, using charcoal, ink, graphite and acrylic. When she works in colour she adds watercolour and gouache. New directions this year are printmaking and using raw pigments. Main influences are Cezanne, Matisse, and Van Gogh.
Aileen has exhibited in the RSA (April 2009), Scottish Drawing Competition (2009 and 2011) and the RSW Open (2012) as well as various exhibitions in Edinburgh. Although she lives in Musselburgh she spends a lot of time in Lochcarron and Wester Ross.
