Artist Information

Anne Cotterill was born in the Borders of Scotland, educated in Edinburgh and graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 1956 at the time when Sir William Gillies was head of painting. She was awarded a postgraduate scholarship to continue her work in Edinburgh followed by a travelling scholarship to Europe that enabled her to study the work and technique of the great traditional painters.  Married life brought her to West Somerset in the early 1960s where the seasonal changes of the wildflowers in the surrounding countryside are a constant source of inspiration for her paintings. Her detailed understanding of botany is combined with a focus on light and texture that gives her work great presence and feeling of movement. She works entirely in oils and paints mainly on board, with background colours kept deliberately plain to accentuate the flower colour.  She died in 2010.
