Pinkie Maclure grew up on the north-east coast of Scotland. As a performer and songwriter Maclure has recorded twelve albums in a career spanning over thirty years. In 2000 she began working with architectural stained-glass windows and was 'drawn to the strange beauty and storytelling power of medieval stained glass.’ Since 2013, Maclure has focused on her personal work, bringing a world of expression and social conscience to her chosen discipline.


Maclure’s desire to ‘tell stories, tackle thought-provoking, contemporary subject matter and link the characters of the past with her own neighbours and adversaries’ creates exquisite and provocative work, full of human insight.
