Iain Mackay

Iain Mackay is known for his paintings of Derbyshire buildings and landscapes. These are painted in a traditional pure watercolour technique in an unlaboured style.



Iain was born in the Pennine village of Downham in the Lancashire Dales of northern England in 1946. Having moved to the south of the country in the mid fifties he studied architecture at the Brighton College of Art gaining a Diploma with Distinction in Architecture. Following a move upcountry to Derbyshire he pursued a career in architecture. During this time he combined his interest in painting with other leisure persuits of drama and music.



Over the years he has exhibited pictures in numerous galleries, mainly in the Midlands but his pictures do now hang on walls all over the world!
