ALICE MACMILLAN - Artist/Printmaker
Alice Macmillan is an artist and printmaker based in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Specialising in linocuts, Alice’s work explores the flora and fauna of the Western Isles. Through detailed mark-making Alice aims to capture the subtle movement and tonal qualities of ‘micro-environments’ bringing the scenes to life with details such as: drops of rain, ripples in water or shimmering fish scales. Combined with the subject these details create an energy, a snapshot of a moment in nature allowing the viewer to experience the essence of an encounter with the wild.

JANE G SMITH - Artist/ Photographer
Jane is a mixed media artist from the Isle of Lewis who works within the mediums of painting, installation, photography, woven images and ceramics. She is interested in combining aspects of place and identity within her work and likes to draw parallels between her own life and the coastal environment that surrounds her.
The concepts of memories, connections and resilience are of particular interest, all which are well suited to the rugged rocks, powerful seas and plant life of the Outer Hebrides. Jane loves trying to bring aspects of the local environment into her art, whether it is through the visual content, by positioning it and documenting it within the location that inspired it, or by incorporating aspects of the site itself within the piece.
ELAINE SMITH - Artist/Printmaker
