Christine McIver

Christine graduated from Grays’ in 1984 as a painter/printmaker. She  works from her studio, at her home in Stirling. 

She retired early from teaching in 2017, so that she could spend more time making art. Her studio has regularly been open to the public during Forth Valley Art Beat, which takes place annually in June. 

Christine has been an artist member of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists since 2007.

The painting which is featured is of Stirling castle as seen from her studio window. The carse in Stirling provides a beautifully lit panorama, created by open sky underlined with old woodlands and the multiple twists of the river Forth. But laterly it has been the rich historical legacy opened up through the work of Bannockburn house volunteers, which has been the recent motivation behind Christine’s work. As a celebration of what is being achieved at Bannockburn she is currently working on a series of portraits of volunteers, and a series of prints depicting the story of The Battle of Sherrifmuir.

The completed artworks will be on exhibition in Dunblane Museum gallery October 2023.
