Scottish born artist Hatti Pattisson began her career as an artist selling her expressive, emotive paintings aged 15 at The Pittenweem Arts Festival in The East Nuek of Fife where she grew up. She dedicated most of her time between school building a collection of art for shows. The act of painting became a huge part of Hatti’s life. It was a space where she could express her thoughts and emotions, somewhere she could play with the real and the imaginary. Hatti has built a growing local and international clientele who have been collecting her work through the years. Many of her clients have seen her grow up and develop her paintings through to her new textile brand. Her style has developed and has gone through visable stages. Over time she has painted reflections of places and memories that are close to her heart, as well as new experiences on her travels. Through her gallery you will see places like the coast of Fife including Elie and Lady’s Tower and landscapes further afield such as Italy and Bali. Seascapes are a continuous subject in Hatti’s work. For her, the sea is a mysterious world of its own which she has always found a sense of relief and comfort from. 2013 saw Hatti introduce textiles to her repertoire. Within only a few months, a significant number of orders have been made, as well as the world renowned 5 star restaurant and accommodation The Three Chimneys on the Isle of Skye featuring Hatti’s fabrics, cushions, lampshades and art in all of their rooms. The relationship between the Isle of Skye’s landscape and her fabrics sit side by side beautifully. So far in 2014, Hatti’s original art and textile collection has been demanded from as far as Dallas, Perth Australia, Holland and all over the UK.

Out of the woods…..
This collection is inspired by my love of nature, texture and the simplistic design of 1960’s contemporary architecture and interiors.
I have attempted to recreate the textures found in nature, such as bark, lichen and wood shavings. By introducing these themes in a sophisticated and highly wearable collection, my aim is to offer contemporary design for an everyday individual statement.
The bracelets and rings from the collection have been specially designed to wear as single units or as stacking pieces, which can be interchanged to create different looks to suit any occasion.
All HORUS jewellery is handmade in Scotland with sterling silver by Louise Mcmanus, BAhons, jewellery and silversmithing, Edinburgh College of Art.
