Tapestry Weaving/Mixed Media

Hand-woven Tapestry on Pen & Paper.

Integrating small works with other mediums to create a different format will probably never go down well with the tapestry purists out there. However there is always an sense of adventure in pushing ones artistic licence to take folk out of their comfort zones from time to time. These works have the double horror of being presented behind glass.

I hope you find Warped Art & Design both interesting and inspiring, and that it will encourage anyone working with fibre to investigate and experiment further within their chosen field.

The basic loom, which is my tool of trade, has remained technologically unchanged. This aspect appeals to me as I weave contemporary images on a machine of such simple and ancient construction.

And if the loom be silenced,
then needles, threads and fingers
have plenty more to say.
