After completing studies in Fine Art at Falmouth University Cornwall, Aimee moved to a studio in the Bressay school in 2016. She works primarily with drawing but also includes elements of photography, and is interested in the many ways both media can inform each other, and in the process, reveal things about image making and our relationship with images.
She's drawn to both historical and natural subjects, and sees Shetland as a very unique and special place to explore these interests. The remote and wild areas of the isles, largely unchanged for hundreds of years, inspire her thoughts on the romantic and sublime in nature. At the same time, the ruins which can be found all across the landscape, and Shetland's strong sense of heritage, also make the passage of human history feel very present. Whilst here, Aimee is hoping to use both drawing and photography to explore some of the interesting, and often contrasting, aspects of beauty and decay in Shetland.
Aimee's postcards are available for sale in the cafe and a selection of her work can be viewed in her studio.
