Stasia Rice

I am most interested in landscapes and geography. Scottish scenery is emotional, often monochrome, so my pictures often bring viewers into a world of one colour.  I carry a long narrow drawing board with paper to places that catch my interest, where I coorie in. This elongated format predominates in my drawings and Artist Books.

I work mainly in carbon, pastels, erasers and watercolours using tone to make atmospheric effects such as in my 16 sketches of the Lomond and Trossachs National Park series.Some of my work has been supported by funding from Paul Hamlyn Trust, Gulbenkian Foundation, Winston Churchill Traveling Fellowship, Mark Fitch Fund.  In the past few years I have curated 2 exhibitions in the Mitchell Library and exhibited in the RSA and other open exhibitions. My art work is in public and private collections including Kelvingrove Museum (Needleworks Project), Glasgow School of Art Archives, Glasgow City Chambers Councillor’s Office, across Glasgow schools and community centers, UK and Canada. 

I am a member of the Scottish Artists Union, SAU. My studio is in Glasgow.
