Islander - Artist - Weaver - Writer
Home for me is Shetland, an archipelago 120 miles north of the most northern point of mainland Scotland.
My desire to make is ultimately about carrying through a sensation, vibration or essence of a place or object, into an artwork, piece of writing or handwoven fabric - to communicate the intangibility of personal experience.
Writing is one of the main ways I begin in developing new work and often my sketchbooks are filled with scribbled words and descriptions capturing a specific feeling triggered by landscape, building, texture or colour. In my blog, I’ve written most often about places in Shetland, aiming to give a personal account of what an area evokes or means for me.
Currently, I’m exhibiting my final MA Art, Space & Nature work at Edinburgh College of Art before returning to Shetland at the end of summer.
If you would like to see what I’m up to or offer some encouragement then sign up to my blog and follow me on social media.
