Jila Peacock

Painter and printmaker, Jila Peacock was born in Iran and studied and practised Medicine at London University before graduating in painting from St Martin’s School of Art in 1984.  Although primarily a painter, she has always had a great interest in music and the performing arts and worked as Artistic Director for ENO’s Baylis Programme from 1989 to 1992.  Moving to Glasgow in 1990, she has been a part-time lecturer in the Glasgow School of Art and a member of the Glasgow Print Studio while continuing to exhibit regularly in Scotland and London.  Her collaboration with composer Sally Beamish resulted in a multi-media project The Seafarer Piano trio, first performed at the Alderton Arts festival in 2001.
