When you literally create colour from the landscape that colour is of the land
The colours that i dye my fibres and wools takes time to take through all the process.
It helps my patience with life , my life and the life around me.
We have been given so much on this earth to work with and nurturing that gift slowly brings a relationship between flora ,fauna and the living soil.
We have had an exceptional warm summer and before we go into the darkness of winter we have had the most spectacular colour show here in the highlands .
The vibrant yellows in the larch , golden hues in the deer grass and the bracken a myriad of oranges and browns.
Subtle colours but alive with a depth you just don't get from artificial , manmade dyes.
These wearable pieces of artwork are inspired by this landscape and it seemed so right to photograph them in that same landscape.
Where i go to often , the beautiful Glen Orchy .
flowing through the landscape that had seen many world calamities , many wars and the mountains remain serene.
Thank you to the lovely Celia for being my model
and great thanks to mother nature for making all of this possible.
I consider myself very fortunate and hopefully my work reflects the joy I have making it .
