Elin Huws

Elected RCA 2011

Elin Huws from Llanbedrog graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 1999 with a first class degree in Tapestry. Having won the Young Scholarship prize at the National Eisteddfod of Wales in 1999, she returned to study for her masters degree at the same university in 2001. Now living in North Wales, Elin creates tapestry weavings inspired by the landscapes, seascapes and poetry of her native country.
"Using the inherent qualities of yarns, their richness and diversity, I create tapestry weavings that emphasise the relationships of depth and tone, stillness and movement."
