About Clive Ramage

I took my first steps to becoming a full time artist over 30 years ago after moving from my hometown of Arbroath to Edinburgh to study a subject completely separate from my artistic pursuits. However, my passion for drawing and painting have remained consistently to the fore and I have been working as a dedicated full-time artist since 2008.

A great deal of my work is an attempt to capture the mood or poetic resonance of the places that fire my imagination. Being self-taught, I believe there are no set rules within which an artist should constrain themselves and this is evident in both my practise and subject matter. Often using a mixed media approach, I am equally at ease producing works in oil, watercolour, pen and even etchings, allowing me to combine vibrant palettes with energetic, expressive line and brushwork.

My paintings and etchings are held in private and corporate collections around the world and have featured in many prestigious exhibitions, including those held annually by the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts, The Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour and the Society of Scottish Artists.
