Gillian Swaile

Gillian Swaile is an artist and printmaker. Originally from Angus in Scotland, she moved to rural Northumberland in 2003.

Her home at Tarset is surrounded by stunning landscapes and an abundance of wildlife, all beneath the dark skies of Northumberland National Park. These provide much inspiration for her work.

When she was at school Gillian spent her Saturdays at art classes. She later studied analytical drawing and more recently photography. 

She eventually fell in love with printmaking and now works predominantly in linocut, though she uses a variety of techniques.

Gillian also produces digital art illustrations and collaborated with author Anna Barker to illustrate her book of short stories, published in 2022.

Here's a selection of her work. See more via the links below.
