[ Moy’s Story ]
A graduate from the renowned Glasgow School of Art with a BA (Hons), Moy Mackay continues to work and live in her native land. 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.
From the Moy Mackay Gallery in Peebles, she continues to exhibit not only her own work, but that of other artists from the Borders and further afield. This website gives the wider audience a chance to view and purchase wonderful pieces of art that Scotland has to offer.
Last 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. Read more in our news section.
I would like to thank our loyal customers who have contributed to the amazing success of the gallery over the past two years. I am delighted to hand over the running of the gallery to our new gallery & business manager Gillian Sosa, whose business development background and love of art in general has been a great fit for the growth we have been experiencing.
