Hello and welcome!! You’re in the right place if you love beautiful, innovative designs.

This website has been created to celebrate the work of Glasgow art nouveau and art deco artist and architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928) and his wife Margaret MacDonald.

Find out about their amazing journey and experience the beautiful, innovative and highly original designs produced by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his equally talented wife Margaret.

You’ll discover the early life of Charles and how he used his disabilities to produce beautiful watercolours, to meeting the love of his life Margaret MacDonald, also a gifted artist in her own right.

How they moved to London in the early 1920s and how Charles created beautiful watercolours and textiles during his stay.

Then they moved to France where Charles continued to paint and produced a collection of innovative scenes of the French coastline.

How the pair teamed up with Margaret’s sister Frances MacDonald (also an artist) and Herbert MacNair a life long friend of Mackintosh.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh was not only a talented architect creating the reknowned Glasgow School of ArtHouse of an Art Lover, Queen’s Cross Church, Mackintosh House and the Willow Tearooms, but he was also an artist, designer and painter.

I hope you enjoy the beautiful innovative designs of these two talented artists as much as I do.
