Jilly Edwards

Tapestry weaver

Bristol, City of Bristol


colour, texture, passion


£100 — £15000


My tapestry is primarily based on journeys whether long haul or local. As I travel, I sketch/ photograph and collect oddments of ephemera, to take back to my studio to work with, collating thoughts of how my travels will influence my ideas.

I have become intrigued by glimpses and moments, trying to capture the elements of my travels using abstracted elements that are influenced by the landscape, not literally but purely in the colour, texture, marks and memories.
