Artist of the Month Exhibition: Jill Mackenzie
Logie Steading Art Gallery is delighted to welcome the works of Jill Mackenzie as our artist of the month for July.
Visit the Gallery situated in the grounds of Logie Steading where you can also browse around the other independent boutiques, take lunch in the The Olive Tree Cafe, have an adventure on one of the many walks around the grounds and river and let the kids go wild in the play park.
Born in Keith in 1950, Jill followed a career in Catering Management after attending Robert Gordon’s University. However, art related projects were always on the horizon and she began, in 2014, to fulfil her dream of painting full-time.
Jill now lives near to where she grew up, working in her studio where she experiments with a range of different media. Her mixed media paintings begin with collage, and then many more layers of acrylic paint, inks, pen and pastel are added to the work. Jill invites you to look closely to reveal the textures and many additions to the canvas.
The local area is the main inspiration for her work which has been exhibited in many of the Galleries in the North of Scotland.
This Logie Steading Art Gallery exhibition runs from 2nd to 26th July
