Hayley’s final year project, ‘’CLAY’’ celebrated the return of honest hand-craftsmanship and artisan values in a collection of printed linen wall hangings and paper art prints for the home. She achieved a BA Honours Degree in Design for Textiles from Heriot Watt University in Scotland
Originally designed and screen-printed in Scotland, the pieces reflect traditional technique whilst embodying contemporary style. The weathered Scottish landscape inspires much of Haley’s work. Combining subtle mark-making with earthly colours; translating a sense of calm with understated depth within her work. Using natural materials, traditional techniques and simplistic style form the basis of Hayley’s practice.
Hayley works with reactive dyes to build layers and ink-like compositions on Irish linen. Combining this with working through blank screens allows unique pieces to be achieved every time. This is important – each of her linen images are originals and this adds to the uniqueness of her striking work.
Hayley was amongst the 2017 graduates chosen to exhibit in Bevere Gallery’s Graduate show.
