Work by a former Moray artist is set to go on sale to raise money for a charity which helped care for her late father.

'From Glenlivet with Love' is the name of the exhibition at Logie Steading the weekend after next, which will feature the work of Rosemary Bushell.

Rosemary, a writer and naturalist as well as an artist, moved north from the Midlands to study for an Msc in Ecology at Aberdeen University.

Her parents, Geoff and Bet, followed and their search for a house brought them to Beechgrove, Bridgend of Glenlivet in 1983.

A sketch book and camera accompanied her everywhere Rosemary went during her many years in Moray.

Her friend Catriona Monro, who is organising the exhibition, said: "The paintings going on sale represent nearly 40 years of happy life in Glenlivet.

"Nature’s course has taken, first, Bet then Geoff and, in late 2020, Rosemary moved south to Shrewsbury to be near relatives.

"Before she left Rosemary asked me to take her work from her years in Glenlivet and sell it in aid of Marie Curie who had given such wonderful care to Geoff in his final months.

"The generosity of spirit with which Rosemary has donated her paintings is reflected in the very competitive prices which will bring them within reach of anyone wishing to own an original work by an accredited artist.

"My thanks go to all who have given me so much help in setting up the exhibition.

"Logie Steading for giving the Long Room with no charge, Tez of Iolaire who produced the cards and designed the literature, Walkers of Aberlour who, along with The Gallery At Aberlour, have helped with the framing of the landscapes.

"Ros Lewis, the chair of Moray Marie Curie, has kindly taken on the financial mechanics and her committee is running the tombola.

"Rosemary says there will always be a big place in her heart for Glenlivet and Scotland."

The 'From Glenlivet with Love' exhibition is being held at Logie Steading, about seven miles south of Forres, from 10am-5pn on Saturday and Sunday, May 1 and 2.

Entry by donation.

All proceeds will go to the cancer charity Marie Curie.
