I create images of picturesque Scottish harbours and cottages in reclaimed textiles and hand embroidery. I generally work to commission, and recent work can also be seen in Eduardo Alessandro Studios in Broughty Ferry, Dundee.
I work mainly in woven tapestry and printmaking. The imagery used in the works is essentially abstract in character. I work in a variety of scales from miniature to large scale.

Catherine Sinclair is a textile artist based in Edinburgh. Her work has a narrative quality inspired by holiday memories and the special items that people like to collect. She explains, "I'm fascinated by people's relationship with the objects they intentionally collect such as stamps, feathers, football stickers and autographs and the pleasure gained from having those items safely stored or displayed."

My work is based on hand and jacquard woven fabrics that can be used for lighting, screens, blinds, and other interior applications. My textile passion lies in woven interior textiles and in the experimental manipulation of structures and geometric patterns. I love to combine traditional and modern weaving techniques to create three-dimensional innovative fabrics.
My work is crafted by hand as each piece is delicately cut. Each piece has been inspired by nature and has then evolved into a contemporary piece through use use of lighting, layering and sculpture.
