About the artist - Ann Ross RSW
Ann Ross RSW (b.1945)is a landscape and still life artist from Edinburgh. She recalls memories of different cultures, landscapes, wildlife and architecture in painted assemblages and images created with water based media.
Ann Ross was born in Edinburgh and trained at Edinburgh College of Art. A travelling scholarship took her to Italy early in her painting career, and was to mark the beginning of a long journey inspired by memories of a different time and place. As she travels she records the light and colour within changing landscapes and the traces of decay and restoration in the facades of traditional buildings. In her studio she recalls these events and creates pictures in her preferred medium of watercolour. Ross is a revered artist and amongst her many awards are The William Gillies Award, The Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolours, The Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolours Council Award and the First Prize Pernod Art Prize. Her works are held in public and private collections worldwide.Sign up to our Ann Ross RSW mailing list
