THE CROFT STUDIO, established in 1968, is the home of the Budge family,
Daisy, Pamela and Donald, who can be seen working together on the
Founder Daisy Budge (nee Jepson) born 1914 in Leeds, and a scholarship
student at Leeds College of Art, first saw the Isle of Skye when sailing
the west coast with her father. She loved it so much that she returned
several times and later married islander, Roderick Budge of Dunvegan.
When work took them to England, Daisy taught art in private schools for
years, but her love of Skye remained strong and she retired to Skye in
1968 to open THE CROFT STUDIO.
Forty years later, and in her 96th
year, she still paints!
