 Having recently graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Textiles, 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.

During my studies I have been supported by The Worshipful Company of Weavers and The Peter Collingwood Trust.
