Emma Jo Webster

Artist Tapestry Weaver

GLASGOW, Lanarkshire


Colour, Abstract, portraiture


£400 — £8000


Well known for her Colourful Abstract Painterly Tapestries and her handwoven portraiure (which are mainly woven to commission).
The abstract pieces are inspired from tiny ink and gouache paintings, Emma Jo loves the way the colour pools and blooms and recreates that in her weavings. More recently she has used coloured magicians rope as the core element, the warp and soul of the tapestry. Leaving the warp exposed - giving the illusion that colour is seeping from the tapestry itself.
