Greer Ralston

 

Greer graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1987 with an Honours Degree in Fine Art.

 

Throughout her career Greer has received numerous art related awards including the Greenshields International Scholarship for figurative art. In her early career Greer worked as a portrait painter. She has exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery in London and had several portrait commissions auctioned by Christies in London to fund raise for a major charity.

 

Greer is also known for her equestrian and polo pieces and was commissioned by BSJA ( British Show Jumping Association) Scotland to paint the horses ridden by Olympic gold medal winner Scott Brash.

 

Now her interests have shifted from figure/equestrian to large scale flower paintings taking her down a new route of colour and expression. Influenced in part by artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Rachel Ruysch.
