Dronma - Artist

I'm delighted that we are showing one of my favourite contemporary colourists for the first time in the gallery. What a joy!
In recent years Dronma has built up an impressive reputation in Scotland as a modern colourist depicting the character of Scotland's mountains and shores in a bold and vibrant fashion. She has been a Tibetan Buddhist since 1976, and is a fantasitc and spiritual person.
Dronma's fluid and energetic painting style conveys the powerful force behind the Scottish coastline, and in particular the dramatic scenery of the west coast and Western Isles.
