Hello, I’m Julia Laing. I am an artist and craft maker, living and working in Scotland.
If I had to choose a handful of words, to describe my work, they’d be: colourful, quirky, tactile, expressive and nostalgic. I work with a variety of media, often textiles, using them to produce both practical objects and art pieces. Inspiration often comes from fabrics themselves, other sources include; folk art, memories, nature, mid 20th century design, as well as the everyday things I see around my home. No matter what I’m making, I love playing around with colours to express a mood or feeling.
I became self employed in 2005 and since then my work has sold in shops, galleries, and at craft fairs in the UK. My work is also available to purchase worldwide through my online shops on Etsy and Folksy
