Graduating from the Glasgow School of Art in 1990 with a BA (Hons), Moy Mackay, born in Edinburgh in 1966, is a Scot born and bred who continues to work and live in her native land today. Moy’s rich vibrant works of art have attracted a steadily increasing fan base over the years following numerous exhibitions throughout the UK and also in the US . From her home in the Scottish Borders she fuels her passion for colour and texture with an unceasing inspiration drawn from her surroundings in the beautiful Tweed Valley, using merino fleece fibres in the same way that a painter uses brushstrokes. The result is a “felt painting” of extraordinary warmth and texture. It is a fascinating, absorbing process which requires a fine balance between spontaneity and control and the wide spectrum of colours offers endless possibilities to create images of startling vibrancy and depth. It is impossible to look at one of Moy’s painting and not see the pure delight that she takes in her unique craft. The exquisite, dreamlike scenes give us a glimpse into her very personal view of the land she loves and have been described as “…art with a complex process, created with integrity and a bone--deep affinity with it’s subject. The result is sensory bliss”
In April 2012 Moy’s first book Art in Felt & Stitch was published by Search Press which is currently selling worldwide, and has recently been printed in Russian and Italian.
Earlier this year Moy was awarded Silver in the coveted Craft & Design Selected Awards 2013. In the category of Textiles and Needlecraft, the judge, Kaffe Fassett commented on Moy’s wonderful use of colour and texture. “Moy’s passionate use of colour and the deep texture created by felting are what draw me to her work. I also like the way that she concentrates on her surroundings for her subject matter – her work is very free.”
Moy is currently working on her second book and more recently travelled to Norway to teach her craft. In 2014 she has been invited to travel to Brisbane to teach.
