Robert Sivell was a member of the Royal Scottish Academy (of painters), and teacher of fine art. He specialized in portrait painting, which supplemented his income. He spent time working in Glasgow & Aberdeen, but made his family home in Galloway where he built a home & studio (The Hollow Stell) on the bank of the River Dee near the town of Kirkcudbright.
