I am a handweaver and scientist whose work sits at the intersection of art, craft and science.
I combine these inspirations with explorations of materiality to create handwoven textile objects that give physical form to data/information, aiming for these objects to promote conversations among diverse audiences around identity (what does it mean to be of a place), connection to place (how do we know where we belong and what about that place matters to us), and collective futures (how does our identity and connection to place influence our behaviours).
What craft do you work with?
Textiles – Fibres
What inspires you to work with this craft?
My textiles-based practice explores identity and connection to place, taking inspiration from my family’s connection to the weaving trade in north-east Scotland stretching over at least seven generations, as well as environmental data (including soundscapes and weather patterns)
How would you best describe your workspace and what tools could you not do without?

Other Craft Practitioners
Intertwining tradition and innovation, my work is rooted in Irish culture, crafting designs that resonate with our collective spirit.
I am a papie mache artist and I make dolls from paper. Maria Callas, Frida Khalo, Freddie Mercury are some of the artists I have been inspired from to create my dolls but not all of my dolls are based on existing personalities, some of them are fictional characters.
Her style is based on a deep desire to encourage women to choose the kind of life they truly want to live. Well-made and high-quality, fashion-forward distinct pieces which are also affordable are the key ingredients for Alkmini’s women’s collection.
At a young age, experimenting with manual skills crossed paths with my fascination with light and its sources.
