Featured artist for April at Larks Gallery in Ballater is Ann Cowan, who is inspired by the architecture and cityscapes of Edinburgh. She is also creating a series of concertina sketchbooks such as that pictured, featuring the harbours of East Lothian and Fife.
Ann’s work has been exhibited widely. She spends time walking and drawing, taking inspiration from the capital’s architecture and cityscape, and she has created a series of concertina sketchbooks featuring the harbours of East Lothian and Fife. She says that the linear form of these books lends itself to representing the walks she takes exploring these places: ‘I’m able to show different perspectives, jump from one spot to another and pick out compositions that catch my eye’.
