As a textiles artist living in the Highlands of Scotland, my work is heavily influenced by the colours and textures of the beautiful countryside which surrounds my studio just outside of Beauly in the Highlands. In recent years, I have become fascinated by the art and science of Eco printing. This process of using only leaves to create natural colour onto fabric brings the maker so much closer to the changing seasons. To watch and to forage in the depths of forests throughout the year and to watch and to listen to the seasons is a wonderfully calming and grounding experience. I work with lots of layering and texturing of fabric with an instinctive slow stitch. Sometimes the work becomes landscape based whilst other times, it is panelled and layered stitched foliage work. I let the naturally dyed colours lead my palette.
Prints onto Vintage paper envelopes
Prayer Flag inspired by Tibetan prayer flags. ‘All joined by invisible threads woven into one cloth.’ I loved making this flag which was made to be part of a lovely project conceived by Linda Illuminardi. Linda is an incredible, innovative eco/botanical printer who teaches all kinds of processes including printing on leather and ceramics. Linda is based in an iydillic studio in the hills outside of Los Angeles.
