Walter Awlson was born in Galashiels in 1949. He studied at Edinburgh College of Art from 1967-71, graduating in Furniture and Sculpture. Afterwards he attended Moray House College of Education from 1971-72, graduating with a Certificate in Secondary Education. This led to a teaching career in secondary schools and further education establishments. Walter Awlson consequently established a workshop in Alloa in 1991 where he worked full-time as a sculptor producing limited edition figure sculptures. After an extremely successful career as a sculptor, he recently decided to focus on his outstandingly beautiful figure paintings.
In 1990 he was the winner of the SPA Alastair Dunn Award. In 1991 Walter Awlson was elected a Professional Member of the Scottish Artists and Artist Craftsmen Association. Walter has completed several major commissions including a ceramic mural for the Alloa Town Centre and a centrepiece for a historical exhibition at Abbott's House, Dunfermline. His paintings are in The Earl of Moray's collection. He also exhibits his distinctive work within art galleries in Scotland, England and America.
He says: "My influences are many and varied, ranging from the Renaissance masters to the Glasgow Boys. We are privileged to live in an age where all this European tradition is readily available to us. It is there to be enjoyed and to inspire us."
