Christine Macintyre

Stand 4/5

Christine Macintyre is an embroiderer and textile artist and from childhood she has had a love affair with fabric and threads. After completing the City and Guilds course at Dundee, her interest was taken to a different level. A total immersion in design, colour and texture using traditional and contemporary techniques drew her so far in that now there is no escape! living and working in Aberfeldy, Highland Perthshire, she has exhibited with both the Society of Badenoch and Strathspey Artists and Creative Cairngorms. Christine is also a member of Broderie Alba, a recently revived textile art group based in the Perthshire/Fife area, who exhibit throughout Scotland. Christine says; “My work has gone through many different stages but collage, with the juxtaposition of colour, texture and shape has always played a major part. I am fascinated by the layering of our landscape and by using hand dyed, semi translucent fabrics with the addition of simple hand stitching enables me to give an impression of what I see. This technique also lends itself well to our built environment and I have recently been experimenting with working on impressions of our beautiful historic buildings.”
