Why Line for a Walk?...
One of my favourite memories from school is of that time at the end of the day when the teacher would tell us we could 'Take a Line for a Walk' This involved taking a lead pencil and, without taking it off the page we would draw a swirling, flowing, overlapping shape which we would then fill with pattern and colour. I LOVED IT!.
My love of drawing started there and has developed into a design career. After completing a degree in textile design at The Scottish College of Textiles I have been designing and illustrating for the fashion and furnishings industry for the last 18 years. Line for a walk started as a personal project to create art or myself and has evolved to where it is today.
My work still starts by taking a line for a walk.
It would be great to hear your story and if you would like to hear more of mine, please get in touch. I send out a (very infrequent) newsletter with news and the odd giveaway.
