CRAB APPLE IN WHITE AND GREEN
CRAB APPLE DETAIL
I taught myself tapestry weaving when I was a teenager and after a long break I have returned to this calm and reflective weaving technique. My weaving uses many different fibres in the threads used in the weft. Whether handspun or commercial yarn I like to explore and experiment with how different fibres work in the weaving process.
In addition to tapestry weaving I use other craft disciplines as part of the design process, and so I felt, embroider and print to widen my visual vocabulary.
My tapestries are developed intuitively and through experimental use of different techniques. This allows me to think about the structure of the weave and the way the surface develops. The core source for my design practice is natural forms such as trees and vegetation, which leads to reflections on colour and light in the weaving process.
