Peter Rankin

Rankin’s recent works include illustrations for Alistair MacLeod’s compilation of short stories “To Every Thing There Is a Season” and Joanne Taylor’s “Making Room”,( a children’s book for which he won the 2004 Lillian Shepherd Memorial Award for Excellence in Illustration). Art from both works headline the Air Aithris Aig M’Athair show, along with a number of other images inspired by stories of earlier times, often told by his late father John Archie Rankin.  Peter Rankin, who had his first published works while still in high school, relects his passion for countryside settings in rich and earthy interpretations of people on the land and their places of belonging.
