Dianne Davidson

Artist Painting and Textiles

Artist Statement

Dianne studied for a BA in Fine Art at Sheffield Art College, graduating in 1982. She set up her first studio in the city while teaching art classes and developing a wide range of arts projects and initiatives. Then came her move to the Hebrides, with a decade spent on Skye before finding a croft tenancy on the westside of Lewis in 2013.

Keeping a flock of sheep would provide the impetus and inspiration to explore a new creative path. Surrounded by an endless supply of wool, Dianne began to explore how she could use felted fibre as an artistic medium. She loves the versatility that wool gives, particularly the subtly varying textures and shades of different breeds' fleeces and, in experimenting with dying wool from her own flock, she has developed a range of colour palettes and fibre textures. The ongoing discovery of the qualities and nuances of felting techniques capture and reflect the colours, light, landscapes, seascapes, animal and plant life of the Western Isles.
