Craig Mackie

I have been creating art since graduating from nappies. As a young man I studied art yet learned more from years of observing my Dad who was a technical illustrator and professional artist. In 2008 I left the offset printing industry after 25 years to commit to being a full time artist and have never looked back.
My acrylic paintings are mostly realistic depictions (with an occasional foray into surrealism) of the everyday locations we tend to overlook. Having found landscapes far and wide worthy of putting onto canvas, I've discovered sufficient beauty and strangeness within minutes of my suburban studio.
