Carol Arnott is a textile artist and maker from Broughty Ferry, Dundee.
Working in felt and reclaimed fabrics, she enjoys recreating the quirky harbors around the East Coast of Scotland where she lives, and is drawn to the isolation and beautiful countryside that is home to the Scottish bothy.
All Carol’s work is hand sewn, and is created by drawing in stitch – using the tone and textures of the materials used to depict the buildings and landscapes created in her work.
Selling internationally, Carol works mostly through commission and has enjoyed exhibiting in a number of exhibitions and galleries throughout Scotland. Her work is widely collected, and has been featured in both ‘Be Creative with Workbox’ and ‘Stitch’ magazines.
Carol is also a Community Learning and Development practitioner and enjoys using her creative skills to both work with community groups and to deliver Textile Art workshops to creative groups throughout Scotland.
