Jeni Ross

Tapestry artist and maker

Farnham, Surrey


colour, design, tapestry


Jeni Ross designs and makes woven tapestries, and designs tufted rugs and wall hangings. Her strong colourful designs bring warmth, texture and content to both homes and public buildings. Influences come from many sources; fine art, performance, literature.

Her designs use layers, contrasts and cycles; earth and air, night and day, negative and positive. These are interpreted using qualities of theatre; colour and illumination, the interplay of planes and textures.
