Artist - Morag Muir

Morag Muir was born in Glasgow in 1960 and studied Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee, graduating in 1982. She completed a year of postgraduate study in 1983, winning the John Milne Purvis Prize and the Major Travelling Scholarship, which financed further study in Italy. Since graduating Morag has successfully balanced a career in painting and lecturing, but due to increasing demand for her work, she is now focusing on her career as a full-time artist. She recently received the Small Painting Award (RSW) and 3 prestigious awards at the Paisley Art Institute.

In recent years her palette has become increasingly vivid, often echoing the hues of Eastern iconography and early Christian art. Stained glass windows, flowers, textiles and ethnic bric-a-brac share the canvas, populating sometimes curious, ambiguous spaces. As much as anything Morag is driven by the sheer joy of painting, the physical act of mixing colour and media to achieve specific textures and transparencies; and the constant challenge of communicating her personal aesthetic in physical form.
