New to the Gallery

Ingrid has always worked on hand stretched canvasses; now she is also using her own handmade 'half chalk' ground and painting mediums using locally sourced beeswax creating a surface that is both strong and varied, adding to the expressive character of the paintings.


Mounted prints of most of the paintings are now available on request from the artist.

About Ingrid A Fraser, Scottish Visual Artist

Born in Argyll, with roots in Moray, Angus and the Orkney Isles, Ingrid has settled on the Moray coast where she works from her studio near Burghead. She obtained a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Gray's School of Art in Aberdeen and has exhibited in shows across Scotland and in London, with works in both public and private collections. She has work in the public collections of Angus Council and Aberdeenshire Heritage, which are included in the Your Paintings project, and the Jolomo Foundation Archive, having received an award in 2007.

"I see these landscapes as living places marked by those who have made their lives there. These are landscapes with histories ranging from ancient Pictish settlements to 19th and 20th century hydro schemes, from historic to contemporary agriculture, fishing and land management. They have their futures too. I wish to create pictures that mirror the marks we leave on the landscape with an honesty that also accepts the captivating effect of the rugged, windblown, changeable beauty of this land upon people."
