Born and raised in Cape Breton, Donna MacRury is an artist and crafter who works primarily with fibre and textiles. Since her childhood, Donna has been creating works of art, wearables and other items of utility using a variety of materials. She occasionally combines methods and techniques to produce unique results. Over the past number of years rug hooking has been her passion in addition to other traditional work such as felting, knitting, crocheting and slow stitching. Donna works from her home in Boisdale where she lives with her husband on the shores of the beautiful Bras d’Or lakes.
