Gyllian Thomson

My way of creating has stayed much the same since graduating from Tapestry at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art.

I paint on paper. I then weave this image to create my Tapestries using the Gobelin technique, mainly in cotton and wool.

The optimism of the colour is important. The present is experienced in what I see in the countryside I live in since moving from the city. I am interested in the way that human intervention has altered the landscape of rural areas over the course of time. This human structuring of the landscape creates patterns and textures that influences my paintings into weave.
