About the artist - Ann Cowan

Ann Cowan’s practice focuses on her home city of Edinburgh. Cowan spends a lot of time observing architectural structures and is particularly drawn to doorways and shopfronts with weathered surfaces, lettering and interesting juxtapositions of colour.

Cowan takes a spontaneous approach to creation through drawing on location then perfecting elements of collage and detail in her studio. As a result many works have developed directly from her sketchbooks where initial preparatory drawings evolve into vibrant compositions.

Ann Cowan, formerly a practicing lawyer, decided to pursue her passion and has exhibited in a range of group exhibitions since 2012.
