About Craig Mackie

A lifetime love affair with all things creative, Craig - AKA Mac - has been painting, illustrating and cartooning his entire life. As a young man Mac attended art classes but discovered that he learned more from observing the skill of his own father, a technical illustrator, who himself was an artist that put a huge amount of detail into his drawings and paintings. Having a career in the offset printing industry, Mac determined to leave the safety of a “normal” job and commit to full time painting in 2008 and hasn’t looked back since. Describing his acrylic paintings as being in the realm of realism with brief forays into surrealism, Mac brings everyday locations into stark, beautiful focus. His interest in the charm of buildings and landscapes provide inspiration for the paintings that depict the surroundings that we tend to overlook daily. Having found landscapes far and wide worthy of putting to canvas, Mac now finds sufficient beauty and strangeness within mere minutes of his home studio with works depicting local structures and well-known iconic modes of transport. Mac’s paintings have found homes in galleries, cafés, art shows and several solo exhibitions and he looks forward to many more years of creating art on the very easel his father handed down to him.
