Exhibiting in the St. Abbs Annual Art Exhibition in 2018

Textile Art

I am excited to announce that I will be exhibiting at the well-respected St. Abbs Annual Art Exhibition at the Ebba Centre in March 2018! I will be showing my textile embroidered art landscapes inspired by East Lothian. For these pieces I use painted fabrics, machine and hand embroidered and with wool, mulberry bark and silk sewn in to make vibrant thread ‘paintings’. For latest news from the Ebba Centre, check out their Facebook page.

Here is a close up photo of my barley stitches. I am really happy with the overlaying of the stitching since it gives a great 3D effect enhancing the depth of the picture. This image is from the foreground section of my latest textile art landscape. The work is based on a view of the Lammermuir Hills from the entrance to West Mains farm and it is the largest landscape I have worked on so far, almost A4 sized.
