Roslin artist Aine Divine has secured her Penicuik Turner Prize hat-trick – winning the award for the third time in eight years.

Aine (43), who received the trophy from Fife-based artist David Annan, said: “I am really pleased.”

The People’s Choice was won by Carol Johnston, originally from Penicuik, and presented by the town’s Citizen of the Year Iain ‘Mose’ Hutchison.

Aine’s entry was a portrait entitled “Graeme”. She said: “He’s a model I have painted a few times.

“He’s a former marathon runner. He is lovely, has got a beard and a very placid nature. It is melancholy looking.”

Full story in this week’s Advertiser. On sale now.
