  • Biography
I have recently been involved in researching aspects of the Turkey Red textile industry in the west of Scotland, not only with reference to my family history but also the sociological impact of the industry and its decline. This led to an exploration of surface textures in post-industrial landscape along with the study of traditional Indian motifs and their appropriation in Scottish textile patterns.
