Caroline Convey

Caroline has been exploring the coast of East Lothian and will be presenting a series of linocut prints. Expect to see a variety of waders, divers, gulls, auks and more.

Since last year’s Art Walk Caroline has been continuing with her Creative Scotland project to document the seabirds in East Lothian. Rather than concentrating mainly on the glamorous puffins and guillemots on the Isle of May, this year she is focussing on more obscure birds like plovers and fulmars. East Lothian and the Forth Estuary are world class areas to see these animals. She has been exploring the coast, witnessing the birds in their natural habitats and photographing them to make her prints. In the last year she has learned to identify many more of the birds that we see along our coasts and learning about their behaviour. It is so interesting and she is looking forward to sharing what she has learned with this year’s Art Walk visitors.

About Caroline has a BA (hons) degree in Fine Art Printmaking from Glasgow School of Art and an MLitt in Museum and Gallery Studies from St Andrews University. 

In March 2022 she was awarded a Creative Scotland Grant to make art about the Seabirds in East Lothian. She was also asked to make prints as gifts for both King Charles and Princess Anne to mark visits they made to Dunfermline Abbey in 2022.

In November 2022 her print of oyster catchers on Musselburgh beach was chosen to be the key image for the Edinburgh Macmillan Art Show and was used for all of their advertising. The exhibition was held at The Tattoo Office in Edinburgh.
