Moira Maclean

Moira Maclean BA Hons MFA is born, bred, lives and works on the Isle of Lewis. "My paintings are the result of deep-mining memory, trying to recapture the feeling of walking through a snowy village in childhood or looking out over glittering sand and sea or catching glimpses of flowery picnic paraphernalia and glinting caravans. Shelter, whether croft houses, sheilings or caravans , is integral to my paintings. Signs of life and lifestyle, paint and vintage wallpaper, tangible evidences of real lives and generations rescued from abandoned houses, are reborn and re-presented in my paintings. A new life is made from forgotten remnants - a glimmer of life and light through a window, a flicker, a memory"
