Artist - Rona Lee

Rona Lee has been a professional artist for twenty-seven years, living and working in the Midlothian village of Crichton. She has had very little formal art education and spent her early years working as a Primary and Special Needs teacher.

Rona’s work is simply ‘about nature’, inspired by the familiar Border hills and by the wild beauty and unpredictable nature of the sea. She works from sketches made on visits to the Hebrides and West Coast and the more accessible beaches of the East Coast.

Rona uses acrylic paint, often combined with a range of mediums to create texture. She works on canvas and on paper applying the paint in layers, both thickly and thinly.

There is no preliminary sketching on the canvas. The image develops, layer by layer, the success or failure of which will dictate what the next stage will be.

This process can take many weeks. However, she can always tell when a painting is finished.

Rona believes that her approach to painting is best expressed by Picasso;

‘I never do a painting as a work of art. All of them are researches’
