Artist Statement

Since working on the theme of disruption for the DIS/rupt exhibition with the Textile Study Group I have become increasingly influenced by both text and music. In my latest pieces for ‘edge’ I have combined this interest with my love of Scottish landscape; drawing inspiration from the text ‘weathering the storm’ along with Mendelssohn’s ‘Die Hebriden’ Overture. I used these elements as my starting point, creating a mixed media and a collaged background based on the colour, texture and the imagery I have collected and collated in my sketchbooks and the work develops from there.

I exhibit regularly with ‘edge-textile artists scotland’ as well as with The Textile Study Group. I enjoy the deadlines and challenges and the friendships that belonging to a group brings.
