Three Fishes Framing's Summer Exhibitions
July - August 2017: An Exhibition by Micaela Walker
The Three Fishes Framing and Gallery are excited to announce that Micaela Walker opened our summer exhibition season earlier in July. Following the successful wine reception for the opening of Micaela's exhibition, feedback from customers, visitors and buyers has been fantastic. Micaela's exhibition ends on 31st August 2017. About the artist: Micaela was born and brought up in Edinburgh and very early on became fascinated by drawing and painting portraits. Although Micaela chose not to study art at degree level (but instead trained professionally as a scientist) she was constantly drawn back to her art work. After taking a career break to have a family she decided to focus on art full time.
Micaela has received a number of awards for her portraits including the Leith School of Art Figurative Artist of the Year 2013, and the Pegasus Art Prize, Artist and Illustrator Magazine Artist of the year 2015. She has also recently appeared on the television program Sky Arts channel Portrait Artist of the year 2017 (heat 2), where her portrait of actress Nina Sosanya was chosen by Nina to take home.
Micaela takes portrait commission and loves the challenge of capturing a likeness and something of the sitter's personality. She ships her work globally with her most recent double portrait commission being sent to Atlanta USA.
