I make fine art textiles and design for architectural glass.
For years I made woven tapestries but now use the speedier medium of building up designs with painted and dyed fabrics and drawing on them with an industrial sewing machine.
My previous career as a designer for the theatre shows in my dramatic use of colour and bold forms though I am as interested in the subtleties of surface detail as in overall impact. Much of my imagery, though abstracted, is drawn from landscape: I am interested in the minute details of nature and the patina of growth and decay as well as the social. geographical, historical and industrial archaeology of my subject.
I can work on a large scale for public buildings but also have work suitable for domestic interiors and welcome enquiries.
