About Heather MacLeod’s art in her own words

“My art has a light and a dark side to it.

I love to paint landscapes on silk. The vibrancy of the colours in the dyes are like nothing else I can create with other mediums. Inspired by the views of Arran, mountains, forest, seascape and machair, the inspiration is endless.

My darker Steampunk Creations, which mostly involve musical instruments and clock pieces or engine parts, is a very 3D style with interesting shapes and textures. It’s exciting to interlace wood, copper, brass and slate into a collage of colours and density.”
