Note: Ethel Walker was born in Ayrshire, Scotland, in 1941. She graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 1964 where she had been taught by David Donaldson, once the Queen's portrait painter. Beginning her career as a teacher, by the age of twenty-seven she was a full-time artist. Walker is one of the most successful female painters working in Scotland today. Her talent in capturing the ever-changing light of the Scottish landscape is outstanding, and her subtle but strong still life paintings are highly-prized. Work is held in many public and corporate collections worldwide, including the Royal Bank of Scotland and Sara Lee Holdings. Ethel Walker's work has been exhibited widely over many years in Scotland, London and around the UK. In The Scottish Contemporary Art Auction of 5th December 2021 "The Lace Cloth" (lot 594) by Ethel Walker sold for £3000 (hammer).
