Gillian was born and brought up in Glasgow.  Educated at Laurelbank School, she was taught art by Mary Allan and Helen Davie, both artists in their own right and inspiring teachers for Gillian. She attended Glasgow School of Art, where she studied Drawing and Painting, and a further Post Graduate for which she was commended.  Gillian then taught for a number of years in Glasgow, and continued teaching part time after she moved to mid-Argyll in 1975 with her husband. Gillian is inspired by the landscapes and seascapes of the West Coast of Scotland, as well as Southern France.  Her chosen medium is Gouache, which captures light and colour fantastically well in her paintings.   Her work is now in collections in the U.S.A, Canada, Hong-Kong, Holland, France, New Zealand and, of course, all over the UK.
