Gabi Gikyte she/her

Gabriele Gikyte is an independent Lithuanian artist, now based in Edinburgh. She finished her studies at the Vilnius Academy of Arts where she studied graphics and printmaking. During her four years at the VAA she ventured broadly in many different types and styles of visual art. Nowadays Gabriele explores a bold approach to ink drawing using a mind flow technique. Art has always been a coping mechanism and a self-therapy to her, yet in this period of her life she believes that engaging in a dialogue is a lot more important.

Hannah Lingard she/her

Hannah’s love for art first took her to the University of Edinburgh to study History of Art. She has since focused on expanding her own practical work, inspired by the artists she has studied. After completing a painting course at Leith School of Art, she is now pursuing a career in painting by building on this current body of work. Her aim is to create artworks that bring joy and excitement to the viewer through the use of bright colours. Hannah’s choice of colour palettes stems from her background in art history, in particular her research into the Scottish Colourists, such as John Duncan Fergusson.
