Issy is taking part in the Hamish Matters festival in Blairgowrie, and will be doing a 'Stitch in time' mixed media workshop, on 4th May 2019, as one of four creative workshops for a project looking at the legacy of poet Hamish Anderson in the town, and how the place has changed. In Issy's workshop, participants will be considering historical and contemporary aerial views of the area, and recreating the patterns, textures and shapes of the landscape and townscape in a creative way. The community creations will form part of a display in the town's library.
Not quit a masterpiece yet but this is my new website. still getting the hang of the new ways of adding stuff and designing pages but do have a look and let me know what you think.
,I found I could still find time to continue with the 'serious', but still fun, mixed media work I enjoy. However I still use drawing and painting in my work. My late father left me rather a lot of materials to inspire me into more traditional work too.
His self portrait as a young man inspires me daily to continue trying to improve my art. Always the art teacher, I was so pleased he saw me gain my Master of Fine Arts in Dundee from the art college where he and my mother met. How lucky I am to have had such creative parents.
Dad did get to see my installation 'Reconnect to the Lost and Forgotten' although he was disappointed I had not 'taken it to the next level' by making a big painting from it! He and my textile designer mother were always debating what real art was!
