We are pleased to welcome Dafila Scott's new exhibition of paintings to the Gallery at WWT Caerlaverock.
"I have spent many happy hours watching birds and other wildlife and this exhibition features some of the encounters I have had in the last couple of years. WWT Caerlaverock is one of my favourite places and barnacle geese are so exciting to watch with their densely packed flocks and frequent interactions between individuals. The pastels of barnacle geese and godwits in this show are the result of a visit to Caerlaverock in autumn 2019".
After training and working as a zoologist, Dafila Scott turned to drawing and painting, studying under Robin Child at the internationally acclaimed Lydgate Art Research Centre, UK. Her work is inspired by wildlife, landscape and people and arises from a combination of field sketches, memory and translation. Working mostly in oils, acrylics and pastels, she has exhibited widely in UK. Recent work includes both figurative and abstract paintings inspired by the fenland around her home and also by visits to Wales, Scotland and South Africa.
She was elected a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists in 1991. In 2014 she won the Birdwatch/Swarovski Prize and in 2017 she won the RSPB Award at the Annual Exhibition, The Natural Eye, at the Mall Galleries. For further details see www.dafilascott.co.uk.
