Marie Hay Workshop – Learn oriental painting techniques – various materials

May 23 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Demonstrations of meditation , ink drawing and japanese sumi-e painting techniques

I am a visual artist working from my studio and from home. My work is mainly as a watercolourist. I paint and draw Architecture and street views of the local environment.

My work was published in the A and I Magazine in May 2003 i did a feature about Garden paintings and it showed drawings of Paisley and told how the work is inspired by Japanese Sumi_e techniqes.From this I got noticed by an english artist who reads A &I she gave me a job teaching to young adults in Spain. I studied Life drawing at Glasgow School of Art and studied also Glasgow college of Building and Printing in the 90s. Exhibitions include the University of Glasgow and West of Scotland University.

Recently I worked with adults for a short time teaching them drawing and Chinese painting techniques .I had a studio in Kilbirnie for a wee while too. I did childrens art workshops in Kirkintilloch at the Auld Kirk Museum and art gallery.I also held a solo exhibition of paintings and drawings here.

In 2012 I was awarded the Bet low Trust Fund and from that funding was invited to show an exhibition of my drawings and paintings at The Hill House in Helensburgh which ran for 4 months.
