Katie designs and makes bags and accessories from Harris tweed - aiming to combine contemporary style with the traditional quality of the cloth. She likes to mix colours and patterns in each item and hardly ever makes two items exactly the same.

When she is not fulfilling bag orders for shops and galleries in the Highlands, Katie loves to experiment with other textile crafts, such as felting, silk paper-making and creative weaving. Sometimes these other activities provide new ideas which can be incorporated into the bag-making.

Katie also teaches textile crafts, mainly through local workshops for adults..

Katie has exhibited regularly with the SBSA and also throughout the National Park with Creative Cairngorms
