Born in Kirkcaldy in 1930 Frances Walker studied at Edinburgh College of Art and then took up a post as visiting teacher of art for the Hebrides. This experience engendered in her a life-long love of wild and desolate places and since then she has chosen to depict the most remote landscapes, with her compositions usually based on coastal reaches, craggy rocks and deserted beaches.

In her 85th year the remarkable Frances Walker returns to the medium of print and again rewards us richly. We encounter vast spaces made intimate. Walker has spent all her life contemplating the sky, the sea the shore – big subjects from a small land – but never provincial by her hand. Her line is always lyrical, she guides its unique contour through years of honed practice.
