Moy Mackay

Award winning artist Moy Mackay was born in Edinburgh in 1966.  She graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1990 and has since lived and worked in the beautiful Tweed Valley in the Scottish Borders.

Using merino fleece fibres and stitch in place of brush and paint she creates ‘felted paintings’ of startling vibrancy and depth where she combines aspects of the traditional craft of felt-making with painting in a magical way. It is a fascinating, absorbing process which requires a fine balance between spontaneity and control, an element she particularly enjoys.  Moy's passion is for colour and her work asserts this with luminous vitality. By using fibres in such a painterly way she has developed a unique coupling of a traditional craft within a fine art application, creating a very personal and innovative approach to visual expression. She is regarded as the leading authority of this art form and has had three books published to date, selling 40,000 copies worldwide. She regularly travels the world to teach along with offering online courses, workshops and retreats from her studio.

Moy’s work is exhibited in galleries throughout the UK and in private collections worldwide.

Moy was featured on Sky Arts ‘Landscape Artist of the Year’ in 2016 where she was shortlisted to the final three in her heat.
