Ross, Stephanie

Stephanie was born in Paisley, famous for its textile heritage and the paisley patterns, and grew up on the Orkney Islands and later in Canada and she has been strongly influenced and inspired by all these places. Light,water,skies,colour, Pictish,Celtic,Norse and Native Canadian Mythology are all elements of her work which unconsciously interplay and combine as a unifying thread running through her various works. Recently she has been drawn back to her roots too, with her own paisley patterns, including the SRD logo. As well as painting and drawing which is often used in her textile and surface pattern design work, Stephanie enjoys jewellery making and working with glass and enamels.
