Art in Action 2016

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who came to say hello at my Art in Action stand this year. It was my best ever show and I nearly sold out of the work I took with me. I only wish I had more! I met some lovely people who made some very kind comments about my work, which has inspired me to continue to follow my instinct and passion for colour and design in hand woven fabrics.

Thank you!

A design full of contrasts, both in the weave pattern and colour. I think I was looking to develop something very different and went on a journey of exploration. I hope you like the results. The colours include black, natural, red, rust orange, pink and blue. Woven in 50% Swedish linen and 50% USA cotton.

The price of fish!

As part of Scotland’s Festival of Museums, the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther showcased work by Fife artists and craft makers on Saturday 16th May 2015. The event ‘Silver in the Shadows’ invited visitors to explore the museum following a treasure trail of artists work inspired by the fishing villages and coast line of East Neuk.

I was invited to show a small collection of shawls and scarves. These were wrapped around the shoulders of the ‘herring lassies’ and on a washing line above a window.

See what you think! It was great fun and lovely to meet so many people. It’s a fascinating museum and one I highly recommend you should visit.

A linen shawl/wrap for spring and summer

I am now designing and weaving a new collection of scarves and shawls/wraps for spring and summer. These are lightweight and made with linen or linen mixes with cotton or wool for a slightly more textured look to the fabric. The first of these is now hot off the loom and available in my shop. It blends the richness of cherry reds, oranges, and purples together with the natural colour of linen to create a beautiful tweedy look to the check.
