Nerine Tassie

Nerine graduated with a degree in Fine Art from Edinburgh College of Art in 2002. She completed postgraduate studies in teacher training and enjoys a career teaching Art & Design. She lives and works in Fife. Of her work she says Natural spaces and forms provide the basis and inspiration for my work; in particular the textures found within the natural world both land and sea. I experiment with a wide range of materials in order to constantly develop new experiences within each painting so each piece takes on its own developing surface and object quality.
