Willie Fulton was born in 1945 and brought up in Glasgow. He studied art at Edinburgh College of Art and graduated in 1967. He became an art teacher the following year and taught in secondary and further education for 30 years, taking early retirement in 1998. This gave him the time to paint professionally and his work began to exhibit widely and prominently.

Willie has lived and worked on the Island of Harris in the Outer Hebrides since 1976. He has his studio on the island and an adjoining gallery which is a four star visitor attraction, open from April to October and at other times by appointment.

Willie was commissioned to paint “The Spirit of Harris” in the historic Rodel Hotel in South Harris in 2001 and is an Artist Member of Paisley Art Institute.

He has exhibited in the RSA, and a number of Edinburgh galleries as well as in solo shows at Aberfeldy, An Lanntair – Stornoway, Woodbine Contemporary Arts and at Stenton here in East Lothian. His work has been shown at various Art Fairs in London, Bristol, Canterbury, and abroad in New York and Cannes.

His work focuses on local landscapes and seascapes of Harris. His painting truly captures the unique light and wilderness that is a feature of this part of the world. He is sought after by collectors and we approached him with an invitation to exhibit in this gallery after a client’s passionate recommendation.

We are delighted Willie accepted and having now seen his work in the flesh we agree wholeheartedly with our client. Willie agreed to take part in our first major exhibition “The Gullane Masters”.
