Set in the tranquil ground of Logie Steading you will find our art gallery.
For June, we are delighted to be featuring the works of Iona Leishman.
Iona says on herself: “I am a visual artist with more than 25 years’ experience of studio and en plein air drawing and painting. I delight in the luscious depth and colour that oil paint extends and often add ink, pastel and charcoal to change pace and create texture. A seasoned outdoor painter, I am drawn to use unexpected colour in my trees and expanses of water and sky, understanding nature’s extensive colour palette. Art tutoring and creative workshop leadership has made up an important plank of my working life for many years I continue to deliver both in my working studio in Kinloss, Morayshire and for Moray Art Centre, Findhorn.
“A profoundly inspiring experience was my appointment as Historic Environment Scotland first artist in residence at Stirling Castle which lead to a long and fruitful relationship with repeated invitations to exhibit to an international audience in the Castle’s Chapel Royal.
“A native Scot schooled in Glasgow and Edinburgh, I have north east connections through my mother and delight in the opportunity of living and connecting creatively with Moray at last.”
