Priscilla along with her twin sister both went to the Glasgow School of Art and were taught by many well known artists. Priscilla worked in Advertising after leaving college. Her sister went on to have a successful career in Fashion Design in Paris. Priscilla married Ivor Dorwood who worked in the offices of Keppie Henderson where Rennie Macintosh once worked.
She gave up painting altogether for motherhood and didn't sell her first painting until she was in her late 40's when she joined the Glasgow Society of Women Artists of which she spent 3 years as it's President. She was also one of the first female artists of the Glasgow Art Club which had been an all male Club. Her social circle included artists such as John Cunningham, John Matheson, Bill Crosbie, Norman Edgar, Goudie and many more.
40 years after selling her first painting she now lives in Wiltshire and we're thrilled to be showing her work at the Old Mill Gallery. Her exhibition includes some of her earlier work and recent works which are for sale. Today she works mainly in watercolour but also pastel & oils and paints what she sees, to quote Priscilla 'Not at all modern'.
