Gill Tyson specialises in lithography, a printmaking process that combines direct and expressive mark making with deliberate and aforethought building of layers. In cool, atmospheric colours the artist explores remote landscapes. Her ever-present brushstrokes indicate a distilled image; an abstracted world that only hints at a human presence.
Tyson trained at Edinburgh University and Edinburgh College of Art, where she graduated with an MA in Fine Art. In 2012 she was one of the artists representing Britain in The International Print Exhibition in Kyoto, Japan and in 2014 was Printmaker Of The Year at Printfest. She was also prizewinner at the Society Of Scottish Artists in 2018.
She is a former Chairman of Edinburgh Printmakers and her work is in several public collections. Gill lives in Edinburgh and on Morvern, a peninsula on the West Coast of Scotland.
