Roslyn Mitchell is a contemporary textile artist from Largs. She combines her love of the architecture and people of Glasgow with her love of colour and textiles to produce bright and quirky textile pieces of art. From Windae Hingers to Wally tiles, Victorian architecture to modern, if she can draw it, she will stitch it.
When she was a wee girl, Roslyn was forever drawing buildings and during her time studying Interior Design at Glasgow College of Building and Printing, she fell in love with architectural drawing.
Her life took a bit of an unexpected turn and she ended up working in finance but after the birth of her third son, and an overwhelming urge to start creating again, in 2010 she dusted off an old sewing machine and taught herself free-motion embroidery.
Her work has evolved over the years but she has found herself back using a drawing board like she did at college and using her architectural drawing skills as the basis for her free-motion embroidery and applique work.
Roslyn also has a fondness for times gone by and buildings lost, and loves to take people on a wee trip down memory lane with her work.
