Born in Dundee, she discovered the world of art at university and hasn’t looked back since. Prestigious posts in Scotland, and helming Birmingham’s Ikon Gallery followed, before she headed down under – where her bold decisions (scrapping the MCA’s entrance fees) and penchant for tartan DMs soon turned heads. Here, she shares her take on beguiling Scottish capital Edinburgh.
Where to drink and eat
Edinburgh has wonderful old bars – the Café Royal has been a favourite since my student days. Leith, the old port area, is worth the trip to eat at The Kitchin where chef Tom Kitchin’s seasonal menu takes you ‘from nature to plate.’
