Barbara Rae CBE RA, renowned Scottish painter is equally at home with creating prints as she is painting. Printmaking has always been an integral part of her artistic life. For Rae, how she conceives and works on her monoprints, screenprints, carborundums and etchings enhances and informs her paintings and vice-versa.
