Jemma Derbyshire

Jemma Derbyshireis a painter living and working in Edinbuurgh. She studied at Drawing and Painting, Edinburgh College of Art and now works from her Edinburgh based studio. Her works are bold, using vivid colours often inspired by the raw, exposed landscape of the Scottish Highlands and from her love of travel. Jemma also tutors a variety of classes and workshops.

Light, sense of place, atmosphere and experience, are fundamental elements in Jemma's work. Her paintings come from her experience of, and relationship to the landscape. This may be through trying to capture the essence of a moment, weather, illumination, or perhaps colour.

Jemma is orginally from the Highlands and moved to Edinburgh in 2003 going on to study BA Hons Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art. Jemma is passionate about colour and landscape and is greatly inspired by her Highland upbringing.
