The objective for this project was to create a series of paintings capturing the heritage processes used in the creation of Harris Tweed.
My vision, using Island girls as models, period costume & artefacts and awe-inspiring locations in the Western Isles, was to recreate and capture the processes that were required to produce Harris Tweed in the Outer Hebrides, some of which are gradually being forgotten.
The time spent in the Western Isles researching the project was amazing. The islands and the people were fantastic. Thanks to everyone who made the project possible.
