Artist Biographies: Ewen MacDonald

Ewen MacDonald was born in 1947 to native Gaelic crofters from the Outer Hebrides. Following some time at art college he worked as a chef, a baker, hewing stone, building and restoring old properties. He first came to the Borders in 1973 to help renovate Chisholme House. He now lives in Hawick.

Inspired by the landscape of moor, heath, woodlands and mountains, MacDonald says: ‘I do not try to copy life nor nature, but build from the inner vision’.
