line for a walk by Gill Cameron
One of Gill’s favourite memories from school is of that time at the end of the day when the teacher would tell the class they could ‘Take a Line for a Walk’ This involved taking a lead pencil and, without taking it off the page, they would draw a swirling, flowing, overlapping shape which they would then fill with pattern and colour.
Gill’s love of drawing started there and has developed into a design career. After completing a degree in textile design at The Scottish College of Textiles, Gill has been designing and illustrating for the fashion and furnishings industry for the last 18 years. Line for a walk started as a personal project to create art or herself and has evolved to where it is today.
Gill’s work still starts by taking a line for a walk.
