Emily MacDonald (ni’n ‘Fhraing ‘ic ‘Fhraing ‘ic Ruairidh Sis) is an artist and craftsperson from rural Cape Breton. Having explored media from papier-mâché to embroidery she now concentrates on ink and watercolour. Her work is primarily inspired by the natural world and Gaelic culture. She has exhibited in group shows at the J. Franklin Wright Gallery and Inverness County Centre for the Arts. Dùthaich is her first solo show.
Working in a light, illustrative style I aim to explore the of layers of memory and history the Gaels have placed upon the land in Scotland and Mi’kma’ki (the unceded ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq People). I have been inspired by my life growing up in Cape Breton, stories of my ancestors, and the landscape itself.
