Skye-based artist Diana Mackie tells of her love affair with the island, where it is said you can experience every season in one day. This environment is the inspiration for her dramatic oil studies, which express her response to the island’s wild and ever-changing moods, both day and night.

She paints waterfalls, woodland, shorelines and moonscapes. Rays of sun penetrating through a storm-cloud, isolated moonlit paths, spume rising from a turbulent sea, the subtle beauty of cabbage and rhubarb – all hold a fascination for her. She also recounts the story of the moon paintings she created in memory of those who took part in the perilous Arctic Convoys during WWII.
