About

I am a textile artist specialising in the production of handwoven rugs and textiles.

All of my pieces are woven by me at my London studio, and in addition to weaving the rugs, a large part of my practice is spent hand-dyeing the yarns I use, in order to achieve the exact colours and gradients needed for each piece.

All pieces shown are available to order, and can be made to any size and in various colours.
