Four people have been appointed to the board of the body that funds the arts in Scotland.
Culture Secretary Fiona Hyslop unveiled Creative Scotland's new board members on Thursday afternoon. They were Fergus Muir, May Miller, Richard Scott, and Sandra Gunn.
Mr Muir runs a tourism business in his birthplace of Islay. He is the former Head of Architecture at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. He was seconded to the interim Iraqi government after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein and assisted in cultural affairs. Mr Muir was awarded an OBE in 2004 for his work in the conflict-torn country and was also made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects.
Ms Miller is currently deputy chair of Bafta Scotland and former Creative Director of Arts and Factual at BBC Scotland. She has worked as Head of the Talkbackthames Scotland and Mentorn Scotland production companies.
Mr Scott is the Managing Director of the Bafta-winning Axis Animation studio and has worked with entertainment industry giants including Warner Bros, Microsoft, Disney, and Sony Pictures.
Ms Gunn is curriculum director at City of Glasgow College and serves as an external examiner for Robert Gordon University. She has also published widely on fine art and architecture.
The quartet will join Peter Cabrelli, Steve Grimmond and Barclay Price, who were recently reappointed to the board.
Creative Scotland chairman, Sir Sandy Crombie, said: "I am delighted to welcome May, Fergus, Richard and Sandra to the Board of Creative Scotland. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from a variety of different backgrounds which will be of great benefit to Creative Scotland in delivering our ambitions for arts and culture in Scotland.
"I also welcome the reappointment of Steve Grimmond, Peter Cabrelli and Barclay Price for another four years on the Board.
"I would also like to thank Professor Gayle McPherson and Gwilym Gibbons for their significant and valuable contribution to the Creative Scotland Board over the past two years and I wish them well for the future."
Creative Scotland is Scotland's national body for the arts, screen and creative industries.
