The station’s upper floor was renovated to form two studios. One studio is used by Lynette Gray and the other by Douglas Gray.
Lynette Gray was born in Edinburgh and is a graduate of both Edinburgh College of Art and Moray House. She now lives in Kinghorn, Fife, working as an artist and part-time teacher of art. Probably best known for her atmospheric scenes of towns and villages, she is also a keen landscape artist, preferring to work from life. Her paintings reflect a love of the countryside and the weathered architecture along the coast of Fife. Lynette is an enthusiastic gardener and plant addict, actively involved in painting and recording the wild flowers and fungi of the area. This passion is evident in her watercolours of botanical subjects. Lynette adopted the gardens, unused flat and waiting room at the station in 2009. The renovation project was completed in November 2011 with the opening of the gallery.
Douglas Gray was born in Kinghorn, Fife, in 1947. He studied at Kirkcaldy High School then at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, where he was awarded a Post Diploma year in Painting.
In 1970 he moved to London to study in the painting school of the Royal College of Art, where he was awarded an M.A. He taught in adult education until 1976 then returned to Scotland.
In 1985, after a long break, he started painting and printmaking again. His prints, particularly the relief prints, have been exhibited widely and he has work in numerous private and public collections in this country as well as in America and Japan.
In 1990 he returned from Edinburgh to Kinghorn where he has his own printing press. His subject matter is drawn from the towns, coasts and seas around Fife.
