Mairi from Tangle Weave Designs is yet another fantastic new young creative talent from the Scottish Borders where we are based and we wanted to share with you some of her fabulous work. Our customers come to us looking for something a bit unique and different, a gift from Scotland or with a tartan flourish and combined with our love of the Highland Cow we couldn't resist showcasing some work by Mairi Helena Photography. Mairi Helena Morton Taking inspiration from the abundant charismatic Scottish Wildlife & Fauna and incorporating complementing textiles, Mairi's Tangle Weave collection looks to create bespoke designs for lifestyle living. From Shetland Ponies to Thistles to Pheasants, these individually created wall art displays are a perfect way to brighten up your home interior. Based in Fife, on the rustic weathered fringes of the East Coast, Mairi takes inspiration from her local wildlife and coastal settings. "I'm so lucky to be right on the doorstep to puffins, grey seals and shore lines of Scottish Thistles to name a few". Influences are also taken from further afield including Perthshire moorlands as well as her homeland of the Scottish Borders. Mairi Helena Photography 3 Her style has been greatly shaped by Scottish childhood influences and love for the outdoors. With both parents being textile designers and weavers, she was brought up with an appreciation of colour, texture, pattern and print. "I have a passion for capturing Scottish influenced imagery and love fusing textiles and natural colour with my photography." Mairi works with some of Scotland's finest textiles to produce high quality bespoke canvas wall art and frames, to add a splash of Scottish style into homes and interiors. Her imagery captures a wide variety of Scottish wildlife, including: The hardy Shetland Pony, the stoical face of the Highland Cow, the colourful Pheasant and the impressive Scottish Blackface Ram. Tangle Weave DesignsEach image is professionally printed and framed, mounted onto high quality Harris Tweeds or tartan plaids. Abraham Moon fabric, Holland & Sherry finest cloths and Johnston's of Elgin Cashmere is often incorporated, creating a high end quality product. Alongside her textile mounted wall products, Mairi also creates Fine Art Postcard Collections, perfect if you're looking for a unique gift from Scotland!
