Contemporary mixed-media printmaking and luxury printed silks
I am an artist/printmaker creating mixed-media prints in my studio in Kyle of Lochalsh, in the north west Highlands of Scotland. All of my prints are hand-pulled and are either very limited edition or completely unique. I use printmaking techniques in various forms to create fine art prints as well as hand-printed luxury accessories for men and women.
My artwork centres around printmaking, predominantly relief printing and screenprinting. Working with a variety of surfaces and materials, including hand made paper and board, I create prints which explore colour, shape and pattern.
I love to travel and I take a lot of inspiration from the places I visit. The way that nature weathers built structures and softens their harsh edges really interests me. Taking photographs – and sometimes rubbings of textures – to work from, I break down these shapes and patterns into simple layers which I then print, and overprint, to begin building back up the history of the place.
I exhibit my work both locally around the Isle of Skye and Lochalsh, and also across the country in various galleries. View the exhibitions page to find out about current and future shows I am involved with.
