Beyond Ruins

Textile artist, Leah Higgins, is best known for her Ruins series: quilts inspired by industrial landscapes.

In this exhibition Leah shares some Ruins quilts along with work from a broader range of inspirations.

Her current series, Cadence, emerged from the quiet comfort and joy that comes from making, from immersing herself in process.

The pieces from her earlier Dunure series were inspired by the influence of place on her mental state.
