Welcome to my website. I use simple mechanical looms to make woven artworks.
This is the first piece in what I project to be a series inspired by illuminated manuscripts and medieval books of hours. I am interested in the composition of those densely decorated pages, the contrast between areas of empty space and intricate lettering and patterns, and the sense that they contain sacred but almost unintelligible meanings.
This is my largest tapestry to date, measuring 35.5" high and 26" wide.
