Orla Stevens is a Scottish Artist working with painting and textiles.

STATEMENT

Orla Stevens creates paintings and textiles that respond to multi sensory experience of place. Translating emotional and physical - visual and aural - perceptions of Scottish landscape and Soundscape into colours textures and marks. These works document the experience and connection to her native wild landscape: celebrating and recording the interconnected relationship of mind, body and environment. Through print, hand painting and embroidery Orla carries these influences to contemporary craft contexts.
