Arabella Crum Ewing

Arabella Crum-Ewing was born in Scotland around 1964, daughter of Humphry John Frederick Crum-Ewing (11 May 1934-14 August 2009) and his wife Carolyn Maule Joan née Burn-Murdoch (23 February 1937-4 January 1975), who married on 30 April 1964. Arabella was educated at Oxford University obtaining a degree in theology and, at the age of 22, at Edinburgh University and at the Art College. She continued living in Scotland for some six years, spending much of her time making etchings at the Edinburgh Printmakers’ Workshop and exhibiting widely. During her time as a student at the Royal College of Art, 1994 was the beginning of her interest in bookmaking, which she further developed in a year spent working in collaboration with the Village des Arts et Métiers du Livre in the South of France 1996-1997. Following a well-established tradition of Scottish artists being seduced by Mediterranean light and colour, she lived and worked in Southern France for ten years before returning to England and to live in Suffolk. Being an artist working with metal and acid, pigment, paper and ink, her work is inspired by the rhythms and dualities found in the natural world. She has exhibited at Compass Gallery, Glasgow; Edinburgh Printmakers’ Workshop; Line Gallery, Linlithgow; Society of Scottish Artists; Coram Gallery, London; Glasgow Print Workshop; Open Eye Gallery, Edinburgh; Fergusson Fine Art, London; Agnew & Sons Gallery, London; Original Print Gallery, Dublin; Netherbow Arts Centre, Edinburgh; The Oxford Gallery; Artists’ Bookfair, London; The Castle Gallery, Inverness; Cambridge Contemporary Art; Espace Gaillane, Avignon, France; Galerie du Bout du Monde, France; Battersea Contemporary Art Fair; the Aldeburgh Gallery; Halesworth Gallery and Norwich Print Fair and elsewhere. She has her studio at 3 Albion Street, Saxmundham, Suffolk.
