About Duncan MacDonald
A native of Britain, Duncan worked from his studio on the Isle of Islay after many years of creating props and scene design for the British film industry. His desire to express this history comes from his connection to it, with his mother from the North of Wales, and his father from the Highlands of Scotland. He moved to Canada after meeting his wife when she visited Islay to search out information on her ancestors. They married in 2004 and live in the Blue Mountains near Collingwood.
