I weave on frames nailed top and bottom for warping to produce hangings and framed pieces using wool and cotton.
Light and weather through the seasons, influence colours and designs and the simple process of pulling weft through warp allows for physical effort to be satisfied while ideas mature into solid, tactile results.
I enjoy condensing natural forms to make images that show their roots in nature but take a simplified approach which can be read by the viewer as an abstract pattern or translation of place and its essence.
The slow process of hand weaving using fingers as my only tools, gives a sincere gauge of time providing room for a wealth of detail and constant development.
I welcome visitors to my studio in Argyll, just ring first to make sure I’m in!
