Effie Galletly


landscape artist

quilt maker


Effie Galletly shows images of her work online, highlighting those pieces inspired by the landscapes and structures of the Western Islands and Western Highlands of Scotland.

"The Hebridean Islands strike a powerful chord with me and set in motion ideas that I feel compelled to express."

From a short distance, the work looks like painting. The method of making is entirely like that of a traditional quilt. Over the last decade Effie has produced a substantial body of work focused on Scottish landscape.

"As a painter would create tone, texture, blend colours with the use of a brush, Effie has cleverly accomplished the same with her use of materials." Eilidh Whiteford  in The Hebridean

A number of the works in the galleries are now in private collections. Those still available can be found in all the galleries and can be recognised by the fact that their prices are still attached.
Effie has done talks and workshops as well as exhibitions in many parts of Britain. All upcoming talks, exhibitions and workshops are listed on the events page and information about past events can be found in the archive. For more information about these events see the About Effie page or get in touch.
