Caroline McNairn (1955-2010) was born in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders. Her father was an art teacher and family friends included the well known Scottish artists, Anne Redpath, William Gillies and William Johnstone. Caroline was a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art (1972-1978) and became a well-known and respected Scottish expressionist painter who exhibited in New York, Chicago, Hong Kong, Los Angeles and Moscow.

She lived and worked in Russia for almost a year in 1990 and was heavily influenced by the Russian Modernist art she experienced there. Caroline was an instrumental member of the innovative 369 gallery in Edinburgh with whom she exhibited her art worldwide in the 1980's. She returned to live in the Borders in the last few years of her life before her tragically early death in 2010.
