HILKE MACINTYRE

Hilke MacIntyre is a contemporary artist working in printmaking, painting and ceramics. Her distinctive simplified figurative style shows her enjoyment of colour, pattern, bold shapes, nature, daily life and being creative. 

Influences are ancient, indigenous and folk art and the modern art and design movements. The direct visual impact of a handmade piece is essential for her art. Hilke was born in Germany near the Danish border and studied Architecture at the College for Art & Design in Kiel. After a few years working for various architects in Germany and Britain she moved to Scotland in 1995 and started printmaking at the Edinburgh Printmakers alongside painting and experimenting with pictures in clay from which her ceramic reliefs developed. 

She lives and works in Arncroach a few miles north of Pittenweem. Her work is widely exhibited in galleries throughout Britain and her woodcuts and linocuts have been used for numerous illustrations. She has been a longstanding exhibitor at the Pittenweem Arts Festival.
