Pie Herring is a British artist who graduated from The Edinburgh College of Art in 2018 with a First-Class honours degree in painting. Pie’s work has been exhibited in a number of shows. Notable highlights include the Royal Scottish Academy’s New Contemporaries Exhibition 2019 where she was awarded the Carnegie scholarship, a group show at The High Line Nine Gallery in New York and in her solo-show Fortitude in Mayfair London in 2022. In November 2022, Pie’s works were exhibited in NDOTO: Under Her Eye, a dual-exhibition at Matbronze Gallery in Nairobi. Most recently, the artist has been living in Morocco as an artist in residence with Riad Alena, Marrakech.

Predominantly working in oils, Pie’s paintings depict tender portrayals and accounts from her travels abroad. Having packed up her London studio three years ago, she is on a journey to discover how different environments and cultures can aesthetically impact the direction of ones painting practice. From living within the oldest Swahili settlement in East Africa to month long stays with the Samburu tribe in the Ndoto Mountains of Northern Kenya, Pie sees painting as an invaluable and beautiful instrument to help foster a greater understanding of the world’s people and cultures.
