Moira Huntly

Born in Motherwell  Scotland 1932, Moira studied in London at Harrow School of Art and Hornsey College of Art.  She holds a London University degree in Art Teaching. She is a Royal West of England Academician Past President of the Pastel Society, a UK Member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, a Member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists and Past Governor of the Federation of British Artists.
 
She has received many prestigious awards, and exhibited extensively in both solo and group exhibitions in the UK, Europe and North America.  Her latest book  ‘Moira Huntly’s Sketchbook Secrets’ has been recently published by David & Charles in the UK and F&W Publications Cincinnati in North America.  

Marine and industrial subjects, buildings in the landscape, figures and still life appeal to her, and she paints in most media including mixed media. Working in the studio from keenly observed ‘on the spot’ drawings, in her paintings she searchs for a balance between the figurative and abstract patterns distilled from the drawings, and her love of colour is in the tradition of the Scottish Colourists.
