Aberdeen born Morag Stevenson studied Fine Art at Aberdeen College. Among her influences she lists the Scottish painter Ken Frewin, whose classes she attended as a young girl, and Joan Eardley. Her paintings explore texture, colour and observation. Working mainly in oils, she captures atmosphere and emotion with her passionate and energetic application of paint. In 2013 she published a limited edition book ‘Findon, A Special Place’ to accompany her exhibition at Gallery at Fifty Five, based on the fishing village.
Morag’s work is in much demand throughout her native North East of Scotland and also Edinburgh and is held in private collections throughout the UK and abroad.
