About the artist

Greer Ralston
Greer Ralston graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a B.A. Hons. in Fine Art. She has worked as a freelance artist for a number of years and has works in public and private collections in the UK and abroad, including those of international sportsmen and entrepreneurs. She lectures and runs a variety of classes and is often called upon to present to Art Groups throughout Scotland.

She regularly exhibits in many well known galleries across the UK and uses her work to fund raise for numerous worthwhile charities, ranging from Cancer Research to Riding for the Disabled. Many thousands of pounds have been raised to date through exhibitions and having portrait commissions auctioned for charity by Christies in London.

Shortly after leaving Glasgow School of Art she was awarded the prestigious Greenshields International Scholarship for figurative art. She has also exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery in London.

After many years working as a figurative artist, Greer recently returned to equestrian painting with a tribute show in 2008 called 'The Horse', dedicated to her late father Gilbert Ralston. The Ralston family, for generations, have had a long association with breeding and riding horses.
Many of Greer's paintings incorporate both her passion for the figure and her life long love for animals. A number of the paintings feature horses and dogs owned by the family.
