Moira Third - Imagine north
A Fine Art graduate using thread as my medium, I create embroidered artworks. Working in Glenmuick, a beautiful, wild highland Glen I am influenced by the landscape, songs and folktales of the North. I begin by painting onto Artist’s canvas using Acrylic paints, then layer with millions of tiny stitches, using just the needle, guided by hand on my domestic sewing machine. Each finished piece hiding its secret painting, bathed in moonlight, quiet and contemplative, their stillness reminds us to stop and reconnect with where and who we are, a sense of simplicity is at the heart of my work.
