New Scottish Seaside Paintings from Two New Artists


Stormy Evening, Pittenweem, by Liz Myhill £225

Artery Gallery would like to introduce (and welcome!) two new artists - Nikki Monaghan and Liz Myhill. Both of these artists have recently delivered collections of their work to us for the first time, and have added something a bit different to Artery.

Liz Myhill, originally from the Isle of Skye (now she's a local in Tayside), has brought us a small selection of her work in two very distinct styles. Her collage style work features her own bold ink drawings cut out and imposed on collage landscapes and villages. This is a really distinct look and is totally unique in our gallery. Liz's other works are beautiful watercolour and mixed media paintings of recognisable places such as The House on the Rock in Pittenweem. These two styles couldn't be more different, or have a more broad appeal.


Harbour Nights ii by Nikki Monaghan £250

Nikki Monaghan's mixed media works also arrived with us just over a week ago, and offer a contrast to Liz's Scottish seaside scenes. Nikki's paintings are bold, bright and playful. When creating a new piece, she is re-creating a memory, rather than a representation of somewhere.
Nikki studied Textiles at art school, and started out her career as an interior stylist, working throughout the UK. She now focuses solely on her paintings and her career as an artist.

Stop into our gallery in St Andrews to see these new collections.
