This exhibition is always a joy to attend there is a real buzz of excitement as the graduating students showcase  their talent to the press, buyers and public. As always most of the the work was imaginative, well executed and beautifully presented , so it is difficult to pick out the best.   It is great to know that UK art schools and universities, where these students have been taught, still managed to maintain  very high standards even in these difficult times of stretched finances and both staff and department cuts.

Print, Stitch and Mixed media artist Judy Scott  has just graduated from Jordanstone with a first class honours degree in Textile Design. She also won the New designers BCFA Scottish leather group award 2013.  Her exquisite pared down designs are inspired by her surroundings especially nature-plants, birds and East Neuk of Fife and the Isle of Mull.

In complete contrast to Buffy’s bold abstract designs is the work of Rosanne Yarde who trained at Falmouth College of Art. Her work consists mainly of hand embroidery , chiffon and all things delicate. She told me her work had been partly inspired by her grandmother.
