Imagine North

Imagine North

My name is Moira Third I am a professional Artist and maker working from my home studio in Glenmuick, a beautiful, romantic highland Glen in Scotland’s Cairngorms National Park. I studied Fine Art at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen and have both an Honours and a Masters degree from my time there. My business name is Imagine North, inspired by a romantic idea of North ( not difficult considering where I live), I make embroidered wall mounted and 3D artworks which are minimal, serene and contemplative. A sense of simplicity is at the heart of my work.
I lost my hearing after a viral infection, my world suddenly became silent and insular, I try to convey the silence in every piece I make.I also try not to let my disability define who I am nor what I want to experience in life, but it can be a challenge. The white hare present in much of my work is an example of change and adaptability.
I spend a lot of time outdoors, if I’m not stitching I’m reading or walking. I am surrounded by natural beauty, wildlife abounds, birch trees and pinewoods stretch down from the mountains to the fast flowing river with its waterfalls and pools. There is also a rich history of human occupation, from medieval towers to deserted crofts and townships- plenty to feed my imagination.
I begin each piece in my Sketchbook or on my iPad, I am rarely found without one or the other.
Using acrylic paints I paint directly onto artists canvas, before layering with millions of tiny stitches, using just the needle and thread, guided by hand, using my domestic sewing machine as a drawing tool. Each piece is inherently unique.
I have been stitching in this way for many( many) years, keeping it simple.
