Artworks by Hilke MacIntyre
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.
"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."
