Much of her inspiration comes from the harbour area of Arbroath and the Angus beaches. She is drawn to the shapes and colours of the creels and other fishing paraphernalia found stacked around the harbour.
Sgèile (sce-leh) is Christina’s latest collection, based on shapes that she first explored during her 4th year studies at DJCAD and then developed into a collection during her time at Vanilla Ink. A repetitive scale pattern reminiscent of creels stacked up round the harbours edge or the skin of haddock before being smoked.
