Patricia Macdonald was born in Edinburgh and educated at Edinburgh University where she gained a doctorate in Biological Science in 1973. An independent photographic artist and graphic designer, she was Head of Publications Design and Production for the National Museums of Scotland from 1985-90. Much of her recent work has involved aerial photography, in collaboration with her husband, Angus Macdonald, as pilot and operations manager. This has resulted in some beautiful close-ups of cloud formations and jewel-like visions of the surface of the earth. Patricia Macdonald has exhibited and published widely in Britain and abroad.
