Collectors of Frances MacDonald’s landscapes love her ability to capture the drama of coastlines in Argyll and the Western Isles. Like her increasingly successful son, Ross Ryan, MacDonald lives in Crinan, where she works in her studio beside the Crinan Hotel, which she has run with her husband, Nick Ryan, for 35 years. She is a regular exhibitor at London’s Portland Gallery and in Edinburgh.
