Born in Chester-le-Street, Co. Durham, Sheila Mackie studied art at Durham University. She later taught art at Consett Grammar School, a period during which she often visited a local circus which inspired many of her works. Mackie participated in group exhibitions at the Royal Academy, the Festival of Britain touring exhibition and the Royal Society of British Artists. In 2001 the Durham Art Gallery at the DLI Museum held a solo exhibition of her work entitled ‘Through the Eyes of a Dragon’. Mackie also produced illustrations for several books including a history of Lindisfarne by Magnus Magnusson and an illustrated version of ‘Beowulf’. Mackie lived and worked in Durham.
