Bio

I received an Honours degree from Glasgow School of Art in 1988, before travelling to Australia where I lived and worked in the textile industry as a woven textile designer. I developed my craft skills in the workplace and consider the experience of sampling new designs on the handloom; handling a variety of fibres and yarns, experiencing the physical and tactile relationships of woven textiles in parallel with a growing understanding of the various processes of commercial production as fundamental to my developing skills as a woven textile designer.
On returning to Scotland in 2008, and establishing my own mini-micro artisan weaving mill, I aim to bring all the craft and business skills and experience I have collected to date to produce, on an intimate scale, cloth to connect with.
