Tractor Art Hebrides

Ness Based artist Sallie Avis began painting tractors in 2015. It all started when she saw her father working on his Ferguson TEA 20. She wanted to create a memory, to draw and paint the tractor which has been in the family since 1963. This was the beginning of Tractor Art Hebrides, a hobby which now takes up all of Sallie’s free time, creating stock and working on Tractor Art commissions.

Alice Macmillan

Alice Macmillan is an artist and printmaker based in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Specialising in linocuts, Alice’s work explores
the flora and fauna of the Western Isles. Through detailed mark-making Alice aims to capture the subtle movement and tonal qualities of ‘micro-environments’ bringing the scenes to life with details such as: drops of rain, ripples in water or shimmering fish scales. These
details create an energy, a snapshot of a moment in nature allowing the viewer to experience the essence of an encounter with the wild.
