Rowena Comrie has worked as a professional artist for the past 30 years; in 2010 she relocated from Aberdeen to Glasgow where she now works from a WASPS studio in Glasgow's Gallowgate. Rowena received a Professional Development Award from Creative Scotland enabling her to accept a residency opportunity in the USA. Most recently she has been selected for the Scottish Portrait Awards Exhibition 2018.
Originally from Essex, Rowena completed a degree in BA (Hons) Fine Art at Reading University in 1982 where she embraced expressionist colourfield painting with confidence and passion.
She continues to develop this dramatic and emotive painting style saying "I make these works from a specific aesthetic point that personally expresses sublime elements of human experiences. Over many years I have refined and developed my technique, a process that continues to challenge and intrigue."
