Post-Fellowship Work

 

Studying first hand techniques used by weavers at the zenith of tapestry production has had a dramatic impact on my work and I now use single coloured bobbins and rely on traditional, more formal techniques. I am also fascinated by the use of symbolism as a short-hand to tell a story, and the double meanings that could often be read into historical tapestries. The work is narrative in nature with an economy and honesty that provides the feel of the medieval without being pastiche, and something of a fairy-tale, albeit of a darker and pensive quality.
