Nancy Turnbull grew up near Stirling and graduated in Biochemistry at the University of St Andrews. However her appreciation of art, along with her skills as a painter and sensitive understanding of the Scottish landscape and its flora, led her to a life of painting. Nancy's love of Scotland, and of the Scottish islands in particular, is reflected in her work; her palette captures something of the muted light and shadow and the soft, gentle tones typical of Scottish landscapes.
Nancy exhibits widely throughout the United Kingdom and for the past few years her work has been selected for exhibition by the Royal Birmingham Society of Art (RBSA). In 2010 she was awarded the prestigious David Cargill Award by the Royal Glasgow Institute (RGI).
