Joan Eardley was born in West Sussex. She studied at Goldsmith's and Glasgow School of Art from 1940 to 1943 and then in 1947 at Hospitalfield under James Cowie. A Post-Diploma at Glasgow in 1948 was followed by travel to Italy and France. From the 1950s, Eardley's output was divided between work depicting the townscape and children of depressed urban Glasgow from her studio in Townhead, and powerful landscapes and seascapes from her cottage at Catterline, in Kincardineshire. She died tragically young.
