Meet the Artist: Eilidh Stewart

Uist Arts Association Winter Show 2023

UAA

May 5, 2022

Eilidh Stewart grew up on the Hebridean island of North Uist. She studied fine art at the University of The Highlands and Islands where she obtained a BA (HONS) in Fine Art during 2013.

Each piece begins as small locational sketches which often aim to capture the ever changing light as well as raw aspects of the sea. Studies are later used as starting points to develop oil paintings, where the varied application of layered textures creates a feeling of depth, whilst reflecting the sea’s movements. Collage and mono printing combine to build up the natural variation of surfaces found on rocks which surround the Hebridean coast.

During summer 2022, Eilidh is exhibiting at the Harbour Gallery, Grimsay Harbour, Kallin, Grimsay, North Uist, HS6 5HY. Open from 4th of July until 6th August, Monday – Saturday,11am – 4.30pm
