Woven Tapestry – Currently I am developing ideas from visual diaries. The work emerges only after observing, drawing ,photographing and experimenting. During weaving ideas continue to evolve too. I particularly enjoy walking and becoming familiar with the details of a landscape, storing up memories, images or gatherings that may lead to the making of a tapestry or a series of tapestries!
Fabric Design – My wonderful twelve shaft countermarch loom provides me with the means to weave designs which can become complex. The technical capabilities are a source of inspiration and fascination. Simple in construction, or not, my fabrics are usually colourful.
To be a weaver is to be a practitioner of an ancient craft that still continues to have completely contemporary possibilities and this particularly appeals to me.
The photos on my page are just a selection from various projects.
Fabric, Paper and Thread is a ‘sideline’. I have been using unwanted materials e.g. paper sample books and discarded t-shirts to make necklaces and pendants. Its a recycling idea – turning ordinary things into non-precious jewellery. People seem to like them!
