(Glasgow, Scotland, 1983)
She studied Fine Arts at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in Dundee, Scotland. In 2005, the Royal Scottish Academy awarded her the John Kinross Scholarship, which allowed her to live in Florence, Italy. In 2012 obtained a Master's in Painting from the Royal College of Art in London, time which she did an exchange at Hunter College of Art, New York, NY.
Inspired by classic art and contemporary popular culture, McGurn's pieces are characterized by the fluidity and intuition of her traces that portray imaginary characters in intimate scenes that explore various themes. In her compositions, we can appreciate the frequent use of washed glazes, nude figures, and superimposed lines.
Currently lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland.
