Edna Whyte

Having worked as a book designer and illustrator, teacher, and restaurant and gallery owner, Edna Whyte is now painting full-time on the island of Luing, south of Oban in Argyll. “It is in her drawings that Edna Whyte’s calibre is most clearly demonstrated – not least in the large works on paper where line alone is the expressive medium, used in a near-abstract manner to express the activities of air and water, wind and light and vapour on and around the islands, and the excitements this activity arouses” (Cordelia Oliver, August 1993).
