Frances Douglas – Ewen Duncan – Claudia Duncan – Vanessa Lawrence – Lorna MacKay

Ewen Duncan studied painting at Glasgow School of Art followed by post graduate studies in New York. He worked in TV and film set design for 17 year until stetting up art4you Scoltand with his wife Claudia to teach and sell art. Some of his art work can be seen at the bottom of this page. His life has been varied and each change has had an influence on his work, none more so than the five years he and his wife lived in Sudney, Australia. He now lives with his wife, two daughters and one dog in Balfron near Loch Lomond National Park.

Claudia Duncan, born in Germany, studied finance and accounting in Germany and Australia and brings the finance and organisational skills gained during her career in various corporate companies in Germany, Scotland and Australia into the mix to run and develop art4you Scotland. She has also discovered her artistic side since working at art4you Scotland and is working mainly in oil and pastels.

Frances Douglas, studied art & design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Edinburgh College of Art. She has worked professionally as an artist and tutor for over 20 years. Frances’ main passion is watercolour, which is reflected in her translucent and vibrant paintings. She uses the medium in traditional and contemporary ways, taking her inspiration from the changing seasons and the landscapes around her.

Vanessa Lawrence, born in Manchester, has recently joined our team. Vanessa has great experience in drawing, painting and sculpting. She has studied and worked in Scotland, Italy, Switzerland, Australia and New York. She now lives and works in Strathblane. Her recent work is part of an ongoing body of work influenced by travels through Australia, Chile and Argentina exploring the working relationship between man and horse.

Lorna MacKay, studied art and design at Loughborough Art College, Staffordshire University and Birmingham Institute of Art & Design; practising artist and experience secondary school teacher for more than 20 years.

Our team of artists enjoy inspiring people in a supportive and yet challenging way to make art. We motivate as well as stimulate. We encourages people to explore new mediums and guide them in an open and flexible way.

Claudia will welcome German speaking tourist and is happy to help with translating or other communication support during any of the art courses and Ewen has basic knowledge of French and German.
