Elaine Niven

Having finally listened to my heart, I decided to give up the 9-5 and follow my passion for art and making on a full time basis. I am currently nearing completion of HNC Art & Design at Ayrshire College and looking forward to continuing my studies. My muse is my 9 year old daughter who patiently sits for me but I love landscape, cityscape, seascape as much as portraiture. I am keen to use experimental techniques and various mediums. I live in beautiful South Ayrshire with its stunning coastline but spent 24 years in Edinburgh. I have maintained a real passion for the city and I'm a frequent visitor.

Recent Exhibitions

Since I am a new Ayrshire Artist, my work has been displayed at Ayrshire College Gallery and Langholm Farm Tearoom Gallery. My first painting is also included in Scotland's Artists marketing literature. I hope to join Open Studios Ayrshire this year, submit work to many Open Exhibitions and widen my exposure locally and further afield.

Other Information

Ayrshire College helps all their student artists with exhibition opportunities at the year end. Venues and dates are yet to be confirmed. They also assist student artists to build their own website. Mine is currently under construction. Further details to be released as and when available.
