Helen Gallogly

Glasgow & The Clyde Valley
Hello!

I am Helen Gallogly, a Textile Designer and Maker, specialising in Printed Textile products and pieces for Interiors.
In addition to fabric I have a love of collecting ephemera of all sorts, so I also produce a range of paper products.

So, where am I from and how did I get here?! In 1999 I moved to Scotland from Bedfordshire to study Constructed Textiles
at Duncan of Jordanstone Art School in Dundee. I found a new home in Scotland, and after spending many years in Fife
developing my practice and then a few more years in Edinburgh I then travelled for 6 months through South America,
working and researching for a new body of work, before finally settling in Glasgow.

From horror, ghost stories and folk tales to botanical life, animal life, taxidermy, museum collections, architecture and archaeology,
my interests are fairly varied, though relationships between many of these things feature in my work.

Among the many interesting projects I have become involved in over the years, the most recent has been the most rewarding of all. In June 2014,
I had the good fortune of being appointed Textile Artist within the Outlander TV series costume team, I have been working for over a year since then
to paint and print bespoke fabrics for principle characters within series 1 and 2.

My parents owned an antique/second hand furniture shop for many years back home, called 'Magpie Corner',
my sisters and I grew up around the shop and many of the more interesting things there ended up back at our house.
My love of antiques and curiosities grew from this exposure, the connection with these things was strong even back then
and the interest and influence has never left me.

I am now based in Strathbungo, on the Southside of Glasgow.
