Elaine Grant (aka MissE) is a textile artist, designer and maker based in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Drawing inspiration from children's wonderfully vivid imaginations and the untainted way in which they view the world, Elaine creates beautifully distinctive quirky characters, tactile soft sculptures and playful accessories & home wares from sustainable textiles.
"Children express their thoughts and ideas with a beautiful sense of honesty and innocence that I find so refreshing and incredibly inspiring."
While Elaine thrives on the process of designing and creating her own work, she is also very passionate about encouraging creativity in others. With a focus on enhancing creative learning and health and wellbeing experiences, she has been involved in delivering projects and workshops that encourage participants to express themselves, shape their own learning and embrace the process of creating through experimentation and exploration.
