Karlyn Marshall

Scottish artist Karlyn Marshall, has been painting and exhibiting since the completion of an NC in Art and Design at Anniesland College in 2012, which reignited a long-suppressed love of expression through paint.  She completed a BA(HONS) in Contemporary Art Practice in 2017 at City of Glasgow College.

Painting from a range of subject matters, Karlyn is inspired by the world around her. Her love of the Scottish scenery and time spent reflecting on life on a beach or a walk in the woods inspires her modern Scottish artwork which uses oils with a combination of brush work and thick, impasto palette-knife marks.  

Taking many photographs in her time outdoors, Karlyn then takes to the studio to create an image - sometimes reminiscent of the specific place and sometimes simply creating an impression or mood of the place or scene.

Sketches from life-drawing or observations of city life in Paris or Glasgow are transformed into a painted image. 

Most recently, Karlyn has created a series of paintings from time spent in the Scottish Hebridean islands of Tiree and Uist with their fascinating and ever-changing vistas.

Karlyn’s work is becoming increasingly well-known through exhibiting locally as well as private commission pieces. 

Karlyn produces original, affordable Scottish art and her creations are now also available as Giclée art prints, coasters, placemats and tiles.
