Having trained as a tapestry weaver at Edinburgh Art College then in tapestry conservation at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Margaret Quinn has been inspired by the skill of weavers from three hundred years ago. Often the designers of these tapestries would base their designs on contemporary prints and adapt them for the weaving process producing very large tapestries. She has used these techniques of printing and weaving to produce her artwork in a simplified form and on a much smaller scale.
Margaret is interested in Arctic wildlife and Scandinavian pattern and has combined them in her tapestries and lino prints.
