BA (Hons), Fine Art: Painting and Printmaking, Glasgow School of Art.
Speaking about her work, Emma Boiston says: “A patchwork of thoughts, smells, textures; layers of a past that looms on my mind, stitched together as a way of treasuring time.
“Fabric is dyed with vegetables, fruits and stains as a form of rebuilding the memory of the garden’s of my childhood; whilst stitching, knitting and embroidering establishes a closeness to domesticity and the women of my family.”
