Yolanda’s design is inspired by the sea charts, nautical navigation symbols and shipping forecasts she remembers from her youth. The charts show North, they show the lighthouses and navigation beacons, and they show the way home to family and loved ones.
Yolanda Bruce is an ex-world traveller who settled in Shetland 12 years ago. The daughter of two lighthouse keepers, she spent her childhood and early adulthood living in lighthouses around Scotland. Formerly a Maths / Physics teacher, she is now in her first year of a Fine Art degree in Shetland.
