Lisa Ainslie

I’m a self-taught artist and English teacher from Galashiels. I loved drawing and painting as a schoolgirl, but put the paints down when I started university in 2000 and never picked them up again till 2017.


Since then, I’ve enjoyed experimenting with a range of media and paint many varied subjects. I have a preference for painting local landscapes, particularly woodlands, in acrylics and oils. I enjoy exploring how the changing seasons impact on the light and colours of our landscapes and woodlands, and use vivid colours and varied textures in my interpretations of these scenes.
