From the moment one enters the front door of Cairnie Hill lodge and sees the amazing mosaic floor in the hall the visitor knows that they have arrived somewhere very special. The design was copied by Ann’s late husband Dick Hunter, from a black and white reproduction of an oil on panel painting known as The Holy Kinship by the workshop of Geertgen tot Sint Jans c.1495 now in the collection of the Rijksmuseum. Admire the way that he has so cleverly made the design fit the available space.

Ann, a successful painter in her own right, comes from a very talented family. She gets her genes from her grandparents and her father, McIntosh Patrick, and she and Dick, who was an artist as well as a lecturer of drawing and painting at Jordanstone College of Art, have very talented children and grandchildren some examples of whose work can be seen around the house. Dick had an eye for collecting objects from reclamation yards which he would later incorporate in the several clever extensions.

This event has been organised by the Angus Fundraising Committee Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
