Rouken Glen Redwood, oil on canvas, 2016

After graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1958, Mary Wilson moved North, settling in the seaside town of Nairn where she brought up her family with husband and fellow artist John Wilson. Here she embarked on her creative journey as a primary, secondary, and adult art educator as well as a keen contributor of community projects including the Inverness printmakers, the Nairn book and arts festival and blue door and wasp studios to name but a few. Throughout this time, she continued her own artistic journey where the ever-changing inspiration of local seascapes and landscapes in the Moray firth proved to be her main passion.

This much admired and impressive tree was a constant favourite in her many dutiful laps of the park with her grandchildren who lived a stone’s throw away, so much so she felt inspired to capture this very recognisable landmark in this wonderful painting Rouken Glen Redwood
