About

Isle of Harris watercolour artist Margarita Williams of Holmasaig Studio Gallery, lives in the village where she was born, situated in spectacular scenery of the Bays Road on the rocky South East of Harris. Her varied work is inspired by the unique Hebridean landscape, wild flowers, seascapes, seabirds, wildlife, St. Kilda, and the crofting environment. Her time studying at the Glasgow School of Art using dyes in textiles led to her interest in the transparent medium of watercolour paint.

A warm welcome awaits you at Holmasaig where you will meet the artist and possibly converse in Gaelic if you wish. There are cards, limited edition prints, Japanese woodblock prints and various sizes of paintings, framed and unframed available to suit all budgets. Acrylic on canvas paintings also part of the collection.There is no pressure to buy and you are welcome to browse.

Margarita's paintings are bought by people from all over the world, who visit Harris and she has a growing number of collectors who own her work.

In 2014 Margarita, one of two Scottish artists, was selected to take up a residency awarded by the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Assoc/ France to draw and paint in the Port Vendre/ Collioure area, where the artist and his wife Margaret Macdonald spent most of the the last few years of his life, and where he painted the landscape and wild flowers. See holmasaiggallery website to view more work and CV

Open Mon to Sat 11-5 pm initially by appointment only. And that will be reviewed at the end of July.
