Biography Kathleen Isabella Mackie
Born Kathleen Isabella Metcalfe in Belfast in 1899, she studied at the Richmond Lodge School and later at Alexandra College, Dublin. Upon returning home, she enrolled at the Belfast School of Art, whilst also taking private lessons from the watercolorists Jessie Douglas.
In 1921, she entered the RA Schools, London, and the following year won the coveted £50 Taylor Scholarship. Her interest in landscape led to her friendship with Frank Egginton, whilst another fellow artist, Eileen Reid (see Whyte's auction catalog, 19 November 2002, Lot 55) encouraged her to exhibit with the WCSI. A retrospective of her work was held by the Ulster Museum in 1996.
