After having work displayed at the Royal Scottish Academy two years ago a Duns artist is bound for London for her first solo exhibition.

Claire Beattie first struck up a relationship with Cameron contemporary Art after their director spotted her work at the Royal Scottish Institute a few years ago.

This led to her selling at the Affordable Art Fair and she couldn’t have made a better first impression, selling every painting she took down with her.

Recognising Claire’s talent, Cameron Contemporary Art offered Claire her first solo show at Bloomsbury’s Store Street Gallery and she’s heading down to London today for the opening.

“As an artist I think it’s important to get a solo show under your belt,” she told ‘The Berwickshire’.

“It gives a statement about what you’re doing and what you’re about.

“I feel very lucky to have been given the opportunity but at the same time it’s been a year of hard work.

“My canvases have inhabited the house while they’ve been drying, waiting to be framed and then packaged to be sent down!”

*Arbor’ by Claire Beattie is running at Store Street until October 30 before moving to Brighton in November.
