The Artist - D S Mackie
Born in Fife, then educated in Belgium and Italy, she came back to Dundee to graduate with a BA Hons in Printed Textiles in 1986. Her initial career was as a lecturer in Art and Design, whilst also working as a freelance artist for CD covers, promotional material and interior design.
Always passionate about Scotland, she jumped at the chance to return home in 2001; fortunately, this coincided with the opportunity to renovate cellars into a gallery and tearoom dedicated to the work of DS Mackie.
She is now able to spend time exploring the ever-changing landscape, seascape and gardens of Fife and Scotland, which provide constant inspiration for all her artwork. Her happiest moments are on completion of a piece that manages to capture the unique personal expressions felt for this wonderful environment.
Her studies focus on Scotland, working in a variety of mixed media with themes that generally involve high impact colours and metallics that aim to create a strong positive image.
