Cohen – Art
Born in 1978 and originally from Saskatchewan, Canada, Cohen has travelled extensively and draws inspiration for her work wherever she goes. Since 2011, she has resided in Glasgow, Scotland and consequently the beautiful landscapes of Scotland have become the focus of her recent work, with an emphasis on the sky, the mountains, trees and water. https://cohen-art.com

Adriana de Matos Artwork
"I was born in Portugal where I studied Fine Arts - Painting. I visited Scotland for the first time when I was at school, and since that moment I decided it was where I wanted to be. Before moving to Scotland my work focused mostly on painting the Human figure, but after being absorbed into the Scottish landscape I started focusing on its local Wildlife, so it became my primary subject. I picked up my palette & canvas and started making portraits of animals and birds, and I have recently discovered the potential of drawing with traditional nib pen. I create affordable prints & framed illustrations of my works so that the Wildlife that fascinates me can become part of your home too." www.adrianadematos.com
