Scott Grier was born in Glasgow in 1956 and has reamined in the area all his life. Studying architecture at The Glasgow School of Art from 1974 to 1980, he regularly mixed with the art fraternity of the period. Thus begun a lifelong passion for Scottish art, particularly that depicting the west coast of Scotland and the islands: a region he has explored throughout his career. The work of the Scottish colourists has inspired him greatly; and succeeding influential artists who have followed their lead. Scott works mainly in chalk pastels, a medium he finds ideal for reflecting the contrasting moods, colours and textures inherent in this part of Scotland. His paintings focus on his own visual interpretation of how shoreline seas meet beaches and distant clouds touch island peaks. Not confined to coastal scenery, he also paints Scottish landscapes and French, Italian and Spanish subject matter. Scott’s work hangs in many private collections throughout Scotland.
