Avril Paton

Avril Paton, who was born in Glasgow in 1941 during the wartime blitz is the daughter and grand-daughter of Hugh and Donald Paton who were both landscape painters on the Isle of Arran. Mardi Gillies, her mother, met and married Hugh when they were both attending Glasgow School of Art in the late thirties.

In 1994 the Gatehouse Gallery sold her painting 'Windows in the West' a depiction of a prosperous Glasgow tenemant, to Glasgow Art Galleries and Museums. It was hung in the Gallery of Modern Art for nearly ten years where it proved to be the most looked at exhibit.
