Fine Art Giclee Prints
The Trossachs Collection is a personal exploration into the notion of home. Home involves an interaction between nature, community and warm human contact. To achieve this, the Trossachs Collection creates a conversation between Scotland's traditional past, and the landscape's contemporary present. Through an exploration and personal connection to her home environment, Orla aims to translate the environmental experience into textile designs. With a focus on colour, texture and tactility, this collection encourages similar experiences of emotions and connections for the user. Inspired by local folklore, history, music and landscape of the Trossachs National Park, these influences intertwine and result in this collection of printed and embroidered double sided blankets.
Trossachs blankets represent metaphorical nomadic homes: Encasing the user in their very own transportable textile home, which may be taken anywhere. When wrapped in a Trossachs blanket, you are immersed in your own sense of place, of home, wherever you may go.
Orla runs expressive painting and drawing workshops for groups and public events, as well as one to one classes on request.
Classes start from 1 hour long, and can span full weekend courses: exploring mark making and non traditional ways of painting, loosening up approaches to drawing and painting. Delving into composition, colour, mark making and process: Classes are suitable for people new to painting, and for those returning to the easel, looking to free up their approach.
