Shaun Fraser is a young artist and sculptor based in the Scottish Highlands. Having been awarded a Residency at An Sùileachan on the Isle of Lewis in 2016, Shaun's artistic development has drawn on his identity, notions of belonging and connection to his homeland. He has completed further artist residencies in Nova Scotia, the Irish Gaeltacht and sub-arctic northern Iceland. Shaun's artistic practice is deeply evocative of the raw and emotive power of the Scottish Highlands, and he uses local soils in his glass castings, while continuing to experiment with screen prints, antlers and glass sheep skulls.

Shaun graduated from the Bachelor (Hons) programme in Glass at the Edinburgh College of Arts in 2012, and completed a Masters degree at the Royal College of Arts in 2017. He has received awards for sculpture in his native Scotland and his work has been exhibited internationally.
