Edinburgh Palette resident, Jacqui Higgs, would like to welcome you all to her forthcoming solo exhibition at &Collective, Bridge of Allan, Stirling.

This is a continuation of a series of small and larger scale paintings related to the tanker/frigate image, as well as a study of urban landscapes and the Scottish seascapes, using on-site drawings of urban seascapes and occasional references to figuration.

“I am amazed, in awe and delighted to witness the changing lights, depths and colours of the North Sea which lash onto my everyday walks; similarly delighted is my collie dog who pummels a furious trail down the sand towards any winged creature spotted on the distant horizon. These vastly changing environments make working outside extremely challenging, and I am hugely indebted to the wonderful seascapes of Joan Eardley and her utter commitment in overcoming and embracing working en plein air in Scotland.”

Jacqui Higgs is an Edinburgh-based, Dublin born artist with a background in fine art and painting. Having graduated from Edinburgh Art College in 1994, she then moved on to study Art Therapy, gaining her Postgraduate Degree in 1996. She became a professional member of the Scottish Society of Artists in the same year. Since then, she has exhibited frequently throughout the UK, in group and solo shows, as well as London Art fairs. She has won the Peter Potter award 2004 (V.A.S) and the Lyth Exhibition award 2015 (S.S.A.).  Jacqui Higgs and Mary Walters also have an upcoming show together next year, here at St Margaret’s house in Gallery 1.
