Dickson, James Marshall

Elected to RSW 1972

Artists Statement

I grew up in the west of Fife where everywhere was the sight, sound, colour and texture of industry. This had a strong visual impact on me and in adult years I have come back to this imagery. I work in waterbased media but using rollers and a large variety of textural media to give the surfaces my work requires.


Educated at Beath High School, left 1960 and graduated Edinburgh College of Art in 1964. Full-time teacher in secondary school 1965 - 1978. Was painting and exhibiting during this period and have continued to work in visual arts exhibiting in many venues, groups and solo throughout Britain.
