Ingrid has been working as a tapestry/textiles artist since 1984.  Based in the East End of London she has undertaken many commissions, including tapestries for the reception decks of cruise ships and further ones for several hospitals and corporate buildings.

“I enjoy the process of changing tone and yarn, using contrasting materials, juxtaposing cotton against wool, linen and silk.  Rhythmic landscapes, populated with stylised figures and buildings capturing cityscapes – line, colour and symbolism are important to me.  The pleasure of creating a tapestry is very satisfying and cutting off the warp at the end gives me a great sense of achievement and spiritual connection.”
