About this project

This new series of work has been developed around the words, ‘The streets are paved with gold’. My tapestries have evolved around a central theme of Manhattan since I first visited the city in 2001. I react to the urban landscape and the systems and patterns that repeat across the streets and avenues. The use of gold is a witty comment on an economic global state of affairs, after I witnessed the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc on the 15th September 2008 from the roadside in New York.
