Colour and texture

A selection of ten embroidered pieces inspired by the details of seaweed, moss and lichen on the Isle of Muck between March and July 2020. Each piece captures the texture and colour palette of a specific place on the island at a particular time of year.

Here they are presented alongside the images that were used as observational research for each piece, before being returned to be photographed within that specific environment.
