- What’s On
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 has also spent time working in Australia. He continues to draw and paint wherever he finds himself. He first came to the Borders in 1973 to help renovate Chisholme House, where he further developed his spiritual education. His artistic eye soon became apparent, bringing beauty to each project he undertook. He now lives in Hawick.
Inspired by the landscape of moor, heath, woodlands and mountains, Ewen Macdonald says: “I do not try to copy life nor nature, but build from the inner vision”.
This is Ewen’s second exhibition at Unit Four.
