I work from my small studio in Glenmuick, a highland glen in the Cairngorm National Park, Scotland. Inspired by a romantic sense of North, I make embroidered wall mounted and 3D artworks. I paint onto Artist’s canvas using Acrylic paints then build on the surface by layering it with millions of tiny stitches, using just the needle, thread and straight stitch on my domestic sewing machine.The completed pieces are minimal, serene and contemplative. A sense of simplicity is at the heart of my work.
I have a BA (Hons) and MA in Fine Art both from my time at Grays School of Art Aberdeen, Scotland.
