Lucinda MacKay was born in Berkshire in 1941 and raised in South Ayreshire, Cambridge and Switzerland. She studied Fine Art at Edinburgh University, where she graduated in 1965, and completed a postgraduate year at the Central School of Art and Design in London in 1974.

Lucinda's work has been exhibited at venues in London and Edinburgh, including the Italian Institute, Edinburgh, the Scottish Gallery, the Royal Scottish Academy and the Queen’s Elm Gallery. In 1964, she produced a prize-winning painting in a public art competition to commemorate the opening of the Forth Road Bridge.

Lucinda has also travelled extensively throughout the United States, Europe, Russia, Turkey and the East Asia. She has exhibited in London, the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh and The Randolph Gallery. She had a solo exhibition at The Torrance Gallery in 1995, where she presented her work on urban life in Edinburgh and Venice.

Her private commissions have included portraits of the author Alexander McCall Smith, Professor Peter Higgs, who proposed the existence of the Higgs Boson particle, and Sir Robert Grieves.

Lucinda often paints still lives in sumptuous oils, utilising bold brushwork and vibrant colours to depict plants and flowers. She has also taught classes on ceramics, art and design in schools and colleges, and lives and paints in central Edinburgh. In her spare time, she likes to play bridge and scrabble and write poetry.
