Hilke MacIntyre was born Germany near the Danish border and studied architecture at Kiel before moving to Scotland in 1995. Since then she has concentrated on printing, painting and ceramics. Her paintings, linocuts and ceramics combine a simplified figurative style with bold shapes, strong colours and abstract patterns. She now lives near St Andrews.
Her work has been selected many times for the annual show at the Royal Scottish Academy and her linocuts and woodcuts have been used for various illustrations.
