Gina is a full time, professional artist working in pastels and oils to paint landscapes and nature. These paintings reflect her love of the Scottish landscape and capture its fleeting moods. Other inspiration has come from regular trips to Canada and time spent visiting family at their lakeside cottage.
Gina is fortunate to have a choice of working from a north facing studio, overlooking the river Tay, or a south facing studio in Pittenweem, looking out to the Forth estuary. There are great opportunities to work ‘en plain air’ from both locations.
Funky Scottish have a blog called A Funky Scottish Life and each month they feature one of the artists that exhibit at the gallery. Gina was featured recently, see 'A day in the life of....Gina Wright.
Some of Gina's work in progress and studies will be posted on her Blog.
