Note: Alma Wolfson was born in 1942. Between 1960 and 1964 Alma studied under Robert Stewart at Glasgow School of Art. Alma has exhibited at many solo and mixed British and Scottish art exhibitions. In the process Alma's paintings have won many art awards including: Barclay Lennie Award Glasgow Society of Women Artists 1995; Millers Art Prize Paisley Art Institute 1995; Southern Art Club Trophy 1995 &1998; Alva Purchase Prize SAAC 1998; Save the Children Award 2000. Alma loves painting 'en plein air' in the Scottish country and seaside. She produces compelling paintings in both oil and watercolours. Wolfson's painterly approach is suited and used to great effect when painting Landscape or Seascapes. But she is equally at home producing beautiful Still Life paintings. For the last 30 years she spent time on the tiny island of Easdale on Scotland's west coast. Much of her landscape work has been inspired by this remote part of Argyll where Alma is a familiar sight on the island often seen as a tiny figure sitting wrapped up against the elements in front of a large canvas.
