Biographical history

Daisy Agnes McGlashan (1879-1968) studied design at GSA from 1898 to 1905 becoming influenced by 'the Glasgow Style'. Her marriage to William Anderson in 1909, and the birth of two daughters between 1910 and 1912, restricted her time for painting and design but she continued to design her own clothes and wrote and illustrated children's stories which were published in newspapers including The Glasgow Herald, The Newcastle Chronicle and The Hexham Courant. She started painting again in her sixties specialising in flower studies in pastels and was elected to the Paisley Art Institute, The Glasgow Society of Women Artists and the Glasgow Fine Art Institute, exhibiting regularly at them all. She continued to paint until her death in August 1968.
