It's through communing with nature that we move closer to our own nature

- Rick Rubin 'The Creative Act: A Way of Being'


Emily Crookshank studied at The Glasgow School of Art from 2007 - 2011. She works from her studio at the foot of Ben Vrackie in Pitlochry, Scotland.

The artwork Emily creates crosses many different media; from stark and powerful charcoal representations of mountains, raptors and falcons; ceramic scuplture and deeply textured works on paper that harness natures elements; to abstract etchings and monoprints steeped in undercurrents of emotional expression.

Locating her studio to the mountainside awakened a sense of creative possibility; the mountains, birds, water and plants, offering a limitless supply of awe and inspiration.
