ARTIST's OWN STUDIO/GALLERY

Fiona Simes studied Fine art and Print making in Hastings and Plymouth before moving to Skye in 1992. Her deep abiding love of the Highlands and Islands is a constant source of inspiration. She puts her heart and soul into her work, trying to catch emotional responses and the mood of a particular moment. The landscape, the history of a place , environmental issues, wildlife and the stories of peoples’ lives are important to her and colour her work in subtle ways.

She is married to a fisherman, has a big family, cats and sheep. Her small lino prints depict elements of a busy life in the Hebrides.

She looks forward to welcoming you to her new studio in Laxay..the kettle’s on!

Mhairi is an award-winning photographer from the Scottish borders, now living and working on the Isle of Lewis.

She has a traditional photographic darkroom where she creates her photography, cyanotypes and textiles and clothing using her prints combined with Harris Tweed.

 

Mhairi is continually energised by the raw beauty the Hebridean environment - from the vast vistas of moors, cliffs and moody skies to the  simplicity of peat line or machair flower.

Mhairi runs workshops and residencies and also hosts exhibitions by other artists and photographers.

Island Darkroom is in the village of Achmore - 5c Achmore, HS2 9DU
