Margaret Maclellan graduated in Drawing and Painting from Edinburgh Collage of Art in 1987. She now works in the Outer Hebrides where not only is the challenging landscape of perennial interest but it’s layers of culture, history and nature help inform her work.
Drawing, painting and printmaking underpin her creative practice.
Engagment with materials is an important part of Margaret's creative process. She works with oil paints, watercolours, charcoal, graphite and with printmaking techniques such as mono print, etching, photopolymer and blind embossing.
In her recent botanically related work, she has sourced materials from her garden and the wild, where the two converge and with images which tie-in with her research. These are an evocation: of personal memory, of family threads and of human interaction with plants.
In some of her recent work she has explored surfaces, textures and shapes of plants.
Acknowledging the complete life cycle, the exquisite decay of leaves and petals are examined in ink; flowers are deconstructed, their form transformed and reconstructed on paper.
Her time is divided between her own practice and part time teaching.
