BOMBYX MORI (detail)
CHROMA : SPIRAL
CHROMA : WINDMILL
CHROMA : FANFARE
I started learning tapestry in 2014 and fell in love with it in an instant. At first, I did figurative work usually based on a photograph. Later I started to explore abstraction. A few years on I realise that my work now moves back and forth between figurative and abstract. It is the challenge of something new that always inspires me.
Creating a narrative in tapestry is the most satisfying task. Long before I discovered tapestry weaving, I read a book in which one of the characters, Becca Weaver, was a tapestry weaver, and the characters she wove came to be in the world as she wove them. That is how tapestry weaving makes me feel.
