Lin Pattullo was born in Glasgow in 1949. Brought up in Prestwick on the Ayrshire Coast, she always loved drawing and sketching. This enthusiasm continued throughout an early career in nursing. As her family grew up, she concentrated more and more on her painting.
She now works from a studio on the outskirts of Glasgow, working outside whenever the Scottish weather permits. Painting mainly in oil she finds inspiration in many areas of Scotland but it is the brilliant colours of the Mediterranean in summer and the winter ski slopes that have recently become her most favourite subjects.
