My work is usually large scale and take months to weave. I use hand-dyed wool and a palette heavily influenced by the muted colours of the Yorkshire landscape. Technically my inspirations are rooted in pre-Renaissance mural tapestries which I have studied across Europe. My recent work is contemporary, bold and unfussy, full of contrast, strength and restraint. I have found an unexpected freedom in giving in to the formality and limitations of the medium instead of fighting against it.
