Moira Third

Paint and Thread on canvas

Moira studied Fine Art at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen and has both an Honours and a Masters degree from there.

My stitched work is made firstly by painting artists canvas, this is important to me, it’s not traced or printed on a computer but a freehand drawing and painting, original in both idea and process.I then layering with millions of tiny stitches, using only straight stitch and just the needle, guided by hand on my domestic sewing machine ( this of course with a profusion of richly coloured thread). The background painting can be glimpsed at times through the thread, but it’s totality will remain hidden, a secret landscape. Simplicity is at the very heart of my work
