Gill Walton

Scotland, United Kingdom

Gill is a multiple award-winning, life-long artist. She currently works from her studio in the Eastern Scottish Borders.

She is a part-time fine art lecturer and tutor and through thorough research, she has developed a deep understanding of artists from the past, such as Caravaggio, Turner and Vermeer. She often ends up using their approaches in her own work while developing new methods.

Her paintings are contemporary figurative using pigment-rich oil paints on aluminium. They merge influences as diverse as historical portraiture, Jungian psychology and dream worlds to create a unique visual language deep in metaphor which can sometimes pose more questions than answers.

After graduating with an honours degree in Sculpture from Cheltenham College of Art in 1989 she has continued to practice art and has exhibited widely.

Currently, Gill delivers workshops for Berwick Educational Association and Berwick Visual Arts around their exhibition programme. Prior to this, she was the founder of Allanbank Arts, an art centre in the Scottish Borders which she ran until 2017.
Before that, she was a part-time lecturer at Worcester College of Art, Stroud College of Art and Borders College. She was also an artist in residence for Gloucestershire psychiatric services and delivered art groups to mental health patients for seven years.
Wescover creator since 2021
