Artist Background

Native to Edinburgh, Primrose attended The Edinburgh Academy (1977-90) and gained a Fine Art degree at Newcastle University (1990-94), then remarkably travelled the world and worked in London for almost a decade without lifting a paintbrush.

In 2003, a trip to Central and South America was the catalyst, which inspired him to return home to Edinburgh to become a professional artist, where he has since then achieved outstanding success.

Celebrating – 20th Anniversary in 2023

Now 20 years on, the talented artist presents the first of three retrospective exhibitions at The Dundas Street Gallery, Edinburgh this year. Although best-known for his ethereal cityscapes of the Scottish capital, Jamie firstly presents a beautiful ‘destinations’ showcase, with over 60 oil paintings and limited edition prints from his many past creative trips abroad and further favourite locations closer to home outwith the city.

(Another two exhibitions later in 2023 – details to follow soon).

Jamie’s work highlights his mastery at capturing transient light, colour and atmosphere at dawn and dusk and his extensive creative development throughout two decades.

If you’d like a closer look at his oil paintings and limited edition prints, why not plan to visit his forthcoming exhibition:

Jamie Primrose: ‘Glistening Echoes’ 20TH ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITION 2003-2023

Friday 9th – Saturday 17th June 2023
The Dundas Street Gallery
6a Dundas Street
Edinburgh
EH3 6HZ


‘Glistening Echoes’ is a gloriously diverse retrospective collection. Jamie’s oil paintings portray shimmering watery vistas from highlight destinations, including:

• Vibrant Central American abstract seascapes in rich colour swathes in Mexico and Costa Rica
• Magnificent and powerful Iguaçu Falls in South America
• Italian delights: timeless sparkling reflections on waterways in Venice and colourful Cinque Terre villages along the Ligurian Coast
• Continental light onto gleaming aquamarine waters and vivid sunsets on the French Riviera looking towards Antibes and Nice
• Atmospheric London nocturnes along the Thames at sunrise and sunset
• Dramatic Scottish West Coast seascapes and shimmering, tranquil East Lothian beaches in winter light

‘Glistening Echoes’ – Limited Edition Prints:

In addition to these stunning original paintings, a fabulous selection of framed limited edition prints along similar themes will also be on display to enjoy. Closer to Jamie’s home, these prints include iridescent sands at Tyninghame Beach, Yellowcraig, and North Berwick – including Bass Rock, plus glimmers of light and ethereal clouds overlooking Ardnamurchan from Eriska on the west coast.

Then further afield – a bit of sunshine…gleaming light and sunset hues on the French Riviera in Antibes and the Italian Riviera in picturesque Portofino. Staying in Italy, this is followed by an extensive suite of shimmering Venetian prints, with glistening late afternoon ripples on the Grand Canal and around the Rialto. Hazier, atmospheric depictions next (now in the UK once again) on the Thames in London at dawn and dusk with stunning vistas of Tower Bridge, Westminster and along the South Bank.

N.B. For a closer look at these fabulous limited edition prints, which will be on display during ‘Glistening Echoes’ – scroll right down to the bottom of this Home Page and see these as our PRINTS OF THE MONTH.

Then please come along, browse and enjoy these artworks…and meet the artist (who is always in attendance at his exhibitions and happy to give you a personal insight into his works) too.

Undecided about whether to get an unframed and framed print perhaps?

\b{UNFRAMED PRINTS


All ‘unframed’ prices on this site and during or outwith our exhibitions, include FREE UK delivery.

These are individually created, signed and delivery within 5 working days. These are sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery anywhere in the UK (a signed-for service).

Fantastic if you're looking for a special, memorable last minute gift to be sent anywhere in the UK.



FRAMED PRINTS

If you prefer a print to be framed in one of our hand-crafted frames as a beautiful presentation piece (for you or your recipient to hang up), rather than a rolled unframed print, this can still be arranged*. (There are no framed prints on this website, please get in touch direct – see further details below). Timescales are 3-4 weeks if not before.

'Framed prints' come in very complementary high-quality hand-crafted frames (plus cream museum-quality conservation mount and glass).

For choices of frames (we'll send you frame images to choose from) and framed print prices, please contact Mari Primrose who is very happy to help further email: mari@jamieprimrose.com or text: 07947 243 418 or leave a message on 0131 446 9510.

*Delivery: Within EH postcodes, your ‘framed’ print will be hand-delivered by the artist (a personal service) to you or your lovely recipient (if you/they are in and around all EH postcodes).

If your destination is outwith EH postcodes, and requires a fine art courier for the rest of the UK, there will be an additional charge and slightly longer timescale accordingly – we’ll happily advise.



N.B. ALL PRINTS (‘framed’ and ‘unframed’) are proofed, signed, titled and numbered personally by the artist, come with a Certificate of Authenticity as a guarantee and can include a special personalised 'gift' letter for your recipient if you wish (all included in the price) – as mentioned above.
