Kenris MacLeod is a textile artist who lives and works in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Kenris worked as a radio producer for 15 years before leaving the BBC in 2008, swapping sound for vision to study at Edinburgh College of Art. Her work uses the medium of free motion machine embroidery, sometimes on a background of ink, in an attempt to describe the textures and complexity of the natural world – specifically trees and skies. Using the sewing machine needle as a pencil, she sews complex designs that combine repetitive forms and abstract shapes with elemental natural imagery, connecting us to our ancient roots and tapping into a memory that is almost, but not quite, lost.
