Personal Statement

My art is all about inspiration and imagination.

Personally, we perceive things based on the value we give them. Our perceptions of things we encounter are altered by the meaning we give to them. The notion of seeing with ‘our mind’s eye’, refers to our dreams, feelings and memories. My memories of places become a patchwork of fragments made up of colour, form and texture. Seeing with my mind’s eye, the colours have become clearer and distinctive. My experiences of the places I pass become infinite imaginings.

Erraid considers her art work to be shaped by the experience of being in a certain place at a certain time and the feeling she felt then. She expresses this through her chosen colours, compositions and textures. Her artwork represents her memories and imaginations of these places, evoking them rather than representing them. 

Born in Perth, Scotland, 1997.

For the first eight years of Erraid’s life she grew up on the Black Isle, Inverness, and then later moved overseas to Dhaka, Bangladesh. She now lives back in the Perthshire parts of Scotland, in town of Aberfeldy, but considers Australia to home too,  in the Kimberley Region, where her family also lives. 

From Scotland to Bangladesh, Scotland to Australia and back again – these places have introduced her to new fields of colour. 

Erraid is currently attending her forth and final year at the University of Dundee’s Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, specialising in Fine Art.​ She is currently preparing for the degree show which will be open to the public between 23rd to 31 May, 2020.

She refers herself as a mixed media artist creating paintings of the Scottish landscapes and seascapes. Erraid uses a wide range of mediums such as, acrylic, pastel, collage and oil. Living in Strathtay she draws her inspiration from the surrounding countryside, the West Coast and the mountainous regions of Scotland.
