Artist-dyer Robin Paris lives and works on Bodmin Moor. Inspiration for her art comes from the richness of the Cornish countryside, with nature, environment, cultural heritage and sense of place featuring strongly in her work. Twenty years ago Robin experimented with orienting the moor by its valleys, instead of through its more familiar hills and tors. The constant looking down, not up, brought a heightened awareness of its streams, leading to a period of observation and study into their individual nuances and character. To create Streams and Pools of Bodmin Moor Robin developed a range of marks, textures and patterns with scrap, found and home-made tools, using them to apply hot wax to cloth prior to dyeing it.
