Posted: 11/02/2014 |

Scottist artist Annemarie Macdonald has created a specially commissioned piece of art for the Royal Blind Week art exhibition and sale, which will take place at Gallery Seventeen, Edinburgh, between Thursday 20 February and 1 March.

Name:  Annemarie Macdonald

Studio / Workplace Location:  Spare room/ Out and about

How do you work? Type of Art created? Paint or draw quickly or over long periods in stages. Depends on light, what the subject is, what the painting is and what I feel like!

Describe your artistic style in 10 words! Can’t really, just paint and draw. I don’t like to think about it, it just happens!

Where do you get your inspiration? It finds me!

Who is your favourite artist? Me! Also I love Berthe Morisot

When creating a piece of art what couldn’t you do without? White acrylic paint and a feather

Why did you decide to support Royal Blind? What does Royal Blind’s work mean to do? I cannot do anything to help in this area but I can paint. It’s good to know your art can indirectly help  and The Royal Blind know how to best help and support.

What’s the best piece of advice you have been given? Never to use black paint-too dead a colour.

If you were a superhero, what superpower would you have and why? To be able to stop time whenever I fancied (just for me) x

Annemarie Macdonald’s artwork will be available for sale at the Royal Blind Week art exhibition and sale which will run from Thursday 20 February to Saturday 2 March at Gallery Seventeen in Edinburgh as part of Royal Blind Week 2014.
