Claire MacLeod

Portrait of Claire MacLeod

Claire MacLeod is a visual communicator, maker and textile artist with a particular interest in place, people and the connection they have with their landscapes. Her work comments on notions of identity with careful attention to detail and a sensitive use of material and colour. 

The physicality of working with archive material, alternative processes, cloth and threads is an essential component in helping her to form her ideas, bridging between the person and the environment that they connect with. 

Claire studied photography at Edinburgh College of Art and has won various awards for her work, including a BAFTA Scotland New Talent Award for her first film, Echo Wall, about climbing on Ben Nevis.
