Madeline Mackay's work centres around the Northern Landscape and the creatures that live there.
Graduating just last year from Duncan and Jordanstone College of Art and design, Mackay already has a whole host of awards to her name. She has undertaken study trips to Nepal and Finland.
'There is something that pulls one towarsd Madeline Mackay's work. It's not just the marks created by etchings and prints, which I love for their timeless quality. There is something else too, another form of maturity in her work, which I think comes from her Caithness upbringing. Animals and archaeology are everywhere there. There is ithe great skill and determination of the artist too.' Tony Davidson
