The Artists bio

James A Gourlay T.ENG. MIED. Born in Dalmellington

Following my retirement from a busy life in project management, I re-engaged with my love of painting, gardening, and interior design work.
I limit my art exhibitions to the more prestigious venues such as Rozelle House and the Maclaurin Gallery in Alloway, where work displayed is mostly by invitation only.
To promote Art in Ayr and District, a group of artists got together and formed “Open Studios Ayrshire”. This has proved very successful in raising the profile of quality artists in the area.
I have taken part in this event for three years now and have sold around 40 paintings, some of which have gone to USA and Australia
My art work is by choice, an eclectic mix of subjects using, water colour and acrylic paint.
I think a painting must tell a story, expressing movement, atmosphere, light and shade or the juxtaposition of shapes.
If the above concepts allow me to share this form of art with others, in a painting, only then do I feel that the painting is sucessful.
