"I’m hugely proud of my Highland roots and heritage, and feel that draws me towards an infinity with an ornamental art form, developed by both ancient and modern Celts. I may not work on metal or stone, but through the mists of time I am influenced to develop pattern from curves and spaces. My 'Spirit Animal' work brings together my enjoyment of combining art and design. Decorative lines continue to link the past and future."
With a BA Hons in Design and Craft, specialising in Graphics, Marjory was the Head of Art and Design in a Highland secondary school for nearly 20 years. She lives on the family croft above Loch Ness, spending time in nature, observing plants and animals in their natural habitat.
Alchemist Gallery hosted Marjory's very first exhibition, November 2020 to January 2021, inspired by both local flora and fauna, recreating a series of Spirit Animals in her own Celtic style. The exhibition, 'Labyrinth', was held jointly with friend Fiona Kearney. The two met at art school 30 years ago, when they vowed to have an exhibition together. We were delighted to be the Gallery to host this, a long overdue first for both very talented Highland artists.
