About Me

Personal Statement

Heather's designs combine playful colour palettes with bold pattern and quality craftsmanship. Her fascination with contrasts, beauty in the unexpected and unusual juxtaposition has always been at the forefront of her design work. She explores these elements through carefully considered yarn choices and specialist construction techniques to create textiles that celebrate the charm of everyday objects. Inspired by childhood puzzles and games, her latest collection of contemporary homeware uses super soft lambswool and a double cloth construction to create luxurious cushions with a strong graphic edge. Heather’s fabrics evoke a sense of fun and are destined to be covetable statement pieces within the home.

Heather graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a BA(Hons) in Textile Design. She has since returned to the art school as a member of staff and currently works as part of the technical team in the Fashion & Textiles Department.

Heather was selected to participate in the Craft Council’s Hothouse programme for emerging maker’s in December 2014.

Year Established: 2014
