Madeleine Hand

MADELEINE HAND was born in Motherwell in 1959. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1981, where she specialised in illustration. Her work has a strong individual and recognisable style; it is defined by an immaculate sense of line and colour, coupled with an unerring eye for making the everyday moments of life beautiful. Madeleine loves the paintings of the 1940s and has been inspired by the work of Eric Ravilious and Evelyn Dunbar.

For the last few years she has been involved in a Community Growing Project in Dunkeld, where those involved grow and harvest vegetables, flowers and herbs for the village markets. The subject of fields, farming, contemplation and celebration often feature in her painting.

Madeleine Hand currently divides her time between commissions and painting. She has been commissioned to produce work for Scottish Ballet, Ivor Cutler, Dunkeld Records and Perth Festival of the Arts. Widely exhibited across Britain, she now lives and works in Perthshire.
