me weaving

Artist and Designer

In 2011 I graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Textiles, and have been working from my studio at Parndon Mill, Harlow ever since.

I create handwoven one-off textile pieces for interior spaces; either as wall-hangings or for windows, and complex multi-directional yarn windings.
I explore ways of combining high contrasts together within a single piece of cloth. Using mostly linen and silk, I experiment with weaving techniques - both traditional and modern, that can allow these contrasts to work together in either subtle or more surprising ways; using gradating colours and textures, varying weight, opacity, and pattern.

The yarn windings are both a way for me to express ideas for woven cloth, and to create intricate layered patterns that would not be possible to weave, as textile art pieces. I weave and wrap to commission from my studio as well as selling through exhibitions both locally and nationally. Parndon Mill holds an Open Studio event each summer where you can come and see me at work.

Jacquard Weaver

I now provide a jacquard sampling service for Artists and Designers on my new TC1 Sampling Jacquard.

I can produce sample size pieces only, no short-runs, at 14" wide, 60 epi with a 2/60's silk warp (other warps on request). Design consultation and assistance also available.
