Denise Fraser is the Featured Artist for February 2019
Denise Fraser is a Glasgow born (1961) classically trained artist who has always been inspired by people and the fragility of the natural world. A landscape and figurative artist, her work has diversified in medium and concept. The clarity of her visual message and independently curated recent solo exhibition titled” Ocean of Time” has displayed a new confidence in her paintings and art textile designs. This exhibition was a celebration and culmination of a busy year exhibiting and devoting time to the voluntary appointment as the Glasgow Art Clubs Gallery Convener and Council Member.
On graduating from Glasgow School of Art (1983) with a BA Hons Degree and acquiring the painting conservation award (Harry McLean bequest), Denise continued to paint. Additional training as an Occupational Therapist (1993) deepened her knowledge of the conceptual and cathartic elements of art. This continues to influence the narrative symbolic aspects of her figurative compositions in textiles and paint.
In 2013 a studio was established in the Stirlingshire area. She lives with her husband and family of aspiring designers. An artist member of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists (GSWA). Her artwork has been exhibited in societies and galleries across London, South East England, Central Scotland, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth and Argyll. It can also be found in private collections in Britain and Australia.
