Biography

 

I work in many ways mixing different techniques and mediums, painting, drawing, illustration, print making, textile, animation. I’m very fortunate to have a beautiful view from my studio window of Irvine harbour and it’s surrounding distant hills which often find their way into my work either as backdrops or in the spotlight. Even on the dullest of days, the view can always inspire.
 

Maree Hughes graduated from the Glasgow School of Art’s Drawing & Painting Department in 1988 and completed a Postgraduate there the following year. As well as drawing and painting she works with a wide range of media most recently experimenting with stop motion and digital animation. Awards include second prize in the Derwent Art Prize 2020; Millers award, Paisley Art Institute 2019; Derwent award, The Scottish Drawing Competition, Paisley 2017. Recent exhibitions include Derwent Art Prize, 2018(Mall galleries London) & 2020  (online due to Covid); The Scottish Portrait Awards, 2017.

 

Maree is based at WASPS Courtyard Studios, Studio E, Irvine, Ayrshire.
