Locally-based, John Mackie lives in Haworth. He studied Drawing and Painting at the Glasgow School of Art (1972-76) under David Donaldson (The Queens Portrait Painter for Scotland). David Donaldson was one of the top Portrait Painters in Britain and in 1974 when approached by Bailley Gerald Magrath  he recommended John to do his official Portrait. Among others were Michael Kelly (Lord Provost of Glasgow) and Duncan Miller (Councill Officer for the  City of Glasgow). John has always agnowledged David Donaldsons importance and influence.

While studying at the Glasgow School of Art, he was introduced to the works of Monet, Renoir and Pissarro. In particular the influence of Monet can be seen in his own painting style and his is an obvious love of impressionist work.

Mackie gained the W H Shanks Award for drawing in 1976 and later received a travelling scholarship from The Scottish Arts Council (1976/77) which he used to work in America and Canada. On his return he lived and painted in Italy and France where he was inspired by the landscape and cities around Tuscany, Umbria and Chianti. In France, he spent time in Paris where he discovered the wealth of material in the everyday scenes around cafés and bistros, especially around the districts beside Place du Tetre and the Champs Elysees.
