About Moy

Moy was born in Edinburgh in 1966. Graduating from the Glasgow School of Art in 1990 with a BA (Hons) degree in Design specialising in printed textiles, she is a Scot born and bred who continues to work and live in her native land today - she's now based in the beautiful Borders.


Moy’s rich vibrant works, with which she has developed an innovative coupling of traditional craft within a fine art application, have attracted a steadily increasing fan base over the years, following numerous exhibitions throughout the UK and also in the US.

She fuels her passion for colour and texture with an unceasing inspiration drawn from her surroundings in the beautiful Tweed Valley, using merino fleece fibres in the same way that a painter uses brushstrokes. The result is a “felt painting” of extraordinary warmth and texture.
It is a fascinating, absorbing process which requires a fine balance between spontaneity and control and the wide spectrum of colours offers endless possibilities to create images of startling vibrancy and depth.

It is impossible to look at one of Moy’s painting and not see the pure delight that she takes in her unique craft.
The exquisite, dreamlike scenes give us a glimpse into her very personal view of the land she loves.
