Artist Leila Aitken tells us, “My initial inspiration to paint came from McTaggart’s paintings in the National Gallery. I attended Edinburgh College of Art for Life Drawing and Portraiture as I did so want to put figures in my paintings as he did.”

Leila Aitken’s nostalgic and evocative seascapes are extremely popular both with the locals and with visiting families to North Berwick. She has lived in North Berwick, Scotland for over 50 years and her grandchildren also feature in her paintings.
