I am delighted to announce that a new artist has joined the ‘Local Artists Project’ set up to support rising creative talent in the Glasgow North constituency.
Kay obtained her BA Hons in Textile Design at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen and worked as an Interior Designer and soft furnishings consultant and maker for several years. She then studied for her Post Graduate Certificate in Primary Education at Jordanhill, Glasgow, and currently divides her free time between creating her art and looking after her 3 children. She has exhibited work in several local exhibitions and regularly attends art fairs in and around Glasgow.
Kay’s colourful paintings have a dream-like quality, suggestive of fairy tales and mysterious places. The magical elements of the moon and stars illuminate the narrative, creating a mystical fantasy world. A selection of Kay’s pieces feature Glasgow architecture and some have a subtle Scottish theme.
The creative and ethereal spirit of Kay’s work is truly unique, and it’s a real pleasure to have her artwork on display. In particular her depiction of the iconic Glasgow Coat of Arms, entitled “A Tree, A bird, A Bell & A Fish”, is stunning, and really brings the spirit of Glasgow to life. I know that passers-by will enjoy viewing Kay’s work, and I hope the display highlights not only her own artistic talent but the wealth of talent we have in Glasgow North.
Commenting on taking part in the Local Artist project, Kay said: “I’m delighted to have a solo exhibition in the constituency office. It’s great to be part of a project that highlights creative talent, and to have local display which anyone can drop by and view.”
Kay Nicolson will be showcasing her art work in the MP for Glasgow North’s constituency office until the beginning of March. The fine art, limited edition, giclée prints are museum quality, printed on textured paper using the finest inks which never fade. They are numbered and signed, mounted and/or framed.
