Moy Mackay was born in Edinburgh in 1966. Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art with a BA (Hons) degree in Design, she has lived and worked as a full-time artist in the beautiful Scottish Borders, which are the main source of inspiration for her work. Moy’s ‘felt paintings’ combine her love of art with traditional felting techniques to create a very personal and innovative approach to visual expression.
She explains, “My ‘felt paintings,’ as I call them, are a way of placing the strokes of coloured fibres as one would place brushstrokes. The results are strikingly rich in colour and texture, and as my passion is for colour, there is a great deal of satisfaction to be had from working with this medium in this way.”
Moy exhibits her work at galleries throughout the UK and in the USA.
