About the Artist
Mike, Ros and Tricia have exhibited together since 2012. Jewellery, prints, textiles etc. on show.
Michael trained in Silversmithing and Jewellery Design at Edinburgh College of Art, gaining his diploma in 1970. He makes mostly in sterling silver and semi-precious stones are often used. On a larger scale he makes boxes, spoons and occasional trophies. He employs the basic design elements of shape, line, tone, colour, pattern and texture to inform his designing. Member of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery.
Ros trained in Display and Design, graduating from Dundee College in 1972. She creates bold pieces of abstract naturalism in acrylic ink as well as linoprints and woodcuts featuring the seaside, animals and birds. She experiments with textures and colour reflecting the seasons in her native Angus.
Tricia graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone in 2011 with a Batchelor of Design in Textiles. She specialises in individually hand-dyed textiles, using a wide range of natural fibres. She has developed her own style of Japanese Nuno felt in fine chiffon silk and merino wool.
