ROSS, Stephanie

Stephanie was born in Paisley, famous for its textile heritage and the paisley patterns, and grew up on the Orkney Islands and later in Canada and she has been strongly influenced and inspired by all these places.Light,water,skies,colour, Pictish,Celtic,Norse and Native Canadian Mythology are all elements of her work which unconsciously interplay and combine as a unifying thread running through her various works. Recently she has been drawn back to her roots too, with her own paisley patterns, including the SRD logo.
Stephanie graduated from Herriot Watt Univerity’s Scottish College of Textiles (as it was then) with a BSc Hons in Clothing &Textiles with Pattern Cutting.Following that she worked briefly in textiles, manufacturing and in quality control and now works, using her many skills as a freelance artist and designer.
