Old Embroidery Mill, Seedhill, Paisley.
If you’re familiar with my work you’ll realise the significance of my new address. As a textile artist, returning home to a place built by the thread and textile industry in the 1800’s it feels right and proper.
I’m totally in love with my new space and really look forward to using it in a different way to my former studio in West Kilbride. For one thing, my daughters are at school just round the corner, so I can pop straight in after the school run. My Dad lives in the next street, so I can keep an eye on him (he’s trouble you know!).
Read some of my thoughts on leaving West Kilbride and moving to Paisley.
And, since it’s a private space, I’ll be able to spend more time to focusing on the increasing demand for commissions. With less time spent commuting I’ll also be develop my practice in a number of ways. Rather than being open on prescribed days, I’ll be working flexibly to suit my workload, learning and research requirements.
