About Christopher Mackay

Christopher Mackay · November, 2018

While I’ve made my living as a designer — mostly website design — since the mid-1990s, I’ve loved to draw as long as I can remember. Life happens, though, and things you love to do get set aside for later. Since 2014, I’ve been revisiting the idea of drawing and painting as often as I can. As for what I choose to draw and paint and what it means, I’ll leave that to someone else.

I live in Sackville, New Brunswick, where I attended Mount Allison University and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree (psychology, English, & physics); after graduating I completed first year in the Fine Arts programme.

I was privileged to study under Thaddeus Holownia, Virgil Hammock, Dan Steeves, Tom Henderson, John Asimakos, and David Silverberg.

In the art community, I have designed websites for the Owens Art Gallery, for Thaddeus Holownia and Dan Steeves, and for fellow Mount Allison graduate, former Fine Arts faculty member, and long-time Sackville resident, Alex Colville. I also designed the original Colville House website (now retired).
