Artists

artworks by  Hilke MacIntyre

"I prefer for my art a simplified figurative style with strong abstract pattern. Particular influences are primitive art, the artists of Europe in the early 20th Century and contemporary design. I enjoy the direct visual pleasure of composing shapes, colours and patterns, looking for an individual picture of the world I see around me."

Hilke MacIntyre was born in Germany and grew up near Kiel. She studied  at the College of Art & Architecture in Kiel. In '96 she moved to Scotland and concentrated on linocutting, painting and ceramic. She now lives with her husband - also an artist - and their 2 children near St Andrews.

She exhibits throughout Great Britain including some solo shows and has been selected many times for the Annual Show of the Royal Scottish Academy. Amongst other commissions her work has been chosen for illustrations of the East Neuk Music Festival and the National Youth Choir of Scotland.
