Renton, Joan

Elected to RSW 1974

Artists Statement

Paintings in oil and watercolour, mixed media. Subject matter varies in all directions except portrait.


Living in an East Lothian village influences my choice of subject matter and medium.
Numerous visits to Italy have also provided material to draw on.
Gardening plays a large part in my life, hence flower and plant forms are important in still life and other works.
