Art in Parliament showcase for talented Cupar painter

Vicky Coull displays stunning art work in constituency office ahead of Open Studios North Fife event

Shortly before she opens her home studio to the public this weekend, Cupar artist Vicky Coull has showcased some of her paintings in the constituency office of North East Fife MP Stephen Gethins.

Vicky trained as a technical illustrator in London, drawing jet engines and other parts for Rolls Royce. She then moved to Scotland to design technical manuals for NCR bank machines.  She has always drawn but it wasn’t until she moved to Cupar and joined the town’s art club that her talent for painting became apparent.

This year will be her seventh year taking part in Open Studios North Fife which runs from Saturday, April 29 to Monday, May 1. Vicky will once again open her home at 12 Castle Street to visitors wishing to see her work which is an assortment of water colour, mixed media, acrylic and collage.

Although she is inspired by the countryside and fantastic views and sometimes captures these on camera, Vicky said her work is never a copy of this but the result of what she sees in her mind when she thinks about the image.

“Over the years my style has changed a lot and I’m very pleased to be able to show some of my paintings in the constituency office and let people who may not normally see my work, view it.”

Stephen Gethins MP said: “Vicky’s work is great and its fantastic to see her paintings bringing colour and life to the walls. Since we began Art in Parliament we have had so many local artists, each with very difference styles, take part and its obvious North East Fife has a wealth of talent. I’d like to wish Vicky well in her Open Studios event too.”
