Last week saw the opening of a special exhibition at the Milton Art Gallery, celebrating the work of a local artist who lost her battle with cancer.

Debbie Neall, who sadly died last year, was originally born in Zambia, attended school and university in Zimbabwe and South Africa respectively.

She came from a family of artists, had always painted, and has had her work exhibited in the Middle East, Louisiana, and England, as well as Deeside.

Her work mainly uses acrylics, and depicts bright landscapes, often of the Aberdeenshire countryside.

The Milton Gallery was keen to pay tribute to Debbie, having frequently displayed her paintings since they opened in 1997 - the year Debbie came to Aberdeen

As well as paintings by Debbie, the exhibition will feature works by some of her friends, including Kanita Sim, Sandie Youngson, Sue Thornton, Elaine Thomson and Alison Davidson.

All her originals are being lent to the gallery by collectors for the exhibition. There are also high-quality framed prints, cards and a book available to buy as well as original paintings by her friends.

The exhibition will run to February 28 and the gallery is open from 10am-5pm on Monday to Saturday and 11am-4pm on Sundays.
