Esther Donaldson

After graduating from Edinburgh College of art in 1993 with a BA (Hons) in Drawing and Painting, and a sell-out degree show, Esther has exhibited and sold work regularly in galleries across Britain, including the RSA and the RSW and the RBA, Mall Galleries, London. Her work can be found in numerous private and public collections across Europe and Canada.  Public collections include Art in Healthcare and Edinburgh University Collection.  

In 1997, Esther graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art with a Master of Design - MDes.

Her work is currently based on gardens, trying to reflect the brevity of life, beauty, toil, energy, death and rebirth that is observed in the cycle of life within the garden.

She strives to evoke the latter through the battles which she has had while creating the work.  Esther’s art is becoming increasingly more referential and not entirely realistic inviting the viewer's participation and hopefully giving glimpses into the life, toil, death and rebirth of the creative journey.
