Magnolia Moments: Ailsa Black
37cm x 37cm
Ailsa Black trained at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen where she studied Graphic Design and Illustration. Today she works from a seaside studio in the tiny Scottish village of Carsethorn in Dumfries and Galloway. From her small studio at the top of her house she observes and captures the daily comings and goings of village life. The birds, animals and countryside surrounding Ailsa have a knack of edging their way into her paintings, prints, cards and gifts.
Ailsa has exhibited at the Royal Glasgow Institute and Paisley Art Institute. In 2017 she was listed as one of 25 top UK influential art brands to watch by a panel of over 200 retailers and business people by Licensing Biz. Today she works with charities like the RSPB and Oxfam to help them promote their work through her art. You will also find her paintings on a growing collection of gifts which are available through her website and in stores across the UK and abroad.
