Although the knitting and crochet element of the Highland Crafters initiative is an incredibly important aspect of Alis’ life and work, her first love is photography. Studying the discipline at the Glasgow School of Art, she used her degree show as a platform to initially ‘sell her wears’. It was Alis’ father who presented her with her very first SLR camera, and she hasn’t looked back since.

Using her talents has allowed Alis to capture the essence and immense beauty of the Scottish countryside through a lens, and these images are used as a basis for many of the products available for sale through the Highland Crafters website:

The patterns and shapes which Alis distinguishes through her pictures are developed into a wide selection of prints including photo etchings, cushion textiles, knitwear (of course!), and a candle collection. Alis is currently wishing to introduce decal printing onto porcelain and we will keep you updated with all Highland Crafters projects.

This stunning collection of photographs has been inspired by old Victorian postcards and Alis’ obsession with the weather and the way it can dramatically affect our precious landscapes.
