As a creative who began her studies with a Foundation Diploma from University of the Arts London, Hay moved to Glasgow to complete a Bachelor of Arts Honors degree in Fine Art from the Glasgow School of Art. Hay’s pratice has always encouraged labour-intensive processes combininig technology with traditional handmaking techniques to create textile works. Her work explores new ways to translate the human form: rejecting the traditional method of life drawing such as long periods of artist viewing subject. Instead, Hay uses shapes to decide the journey a drawing takes, proposing freedom of expression and creative adventure when drawing the human form. 

Hay is currently exhibiting a new work ‘The Circus’ at Box Hub, Glasgow until 3rd December 2021.
