Inspired by my photographic images of architecture, cities and reflections I am developing a range of textiles.

I have previously created metal sculptures based upon my photographic images and am presently exploring ways of using my photos as inspiration to create patterns which are then woven in silk and digitally printed onto silk. 

I have developed a range of woven silk ties and printed silk scarves and am currently extending the range.  The colours selected have been chosen in direct reference to the original inspirational photographic images.   

In addition to creating fashion accessories I have used some of my woven silk to upholster chair seats. This has led me to spending more time experimenting with upholstery.  I discovered metal frames hidden within old chairs and am now developing ideas to create metal and wooden frames to support my new fabric designs.

If you have any questions about the fabrics or would like to create bespoke fabrics I would be happy to discuss ideas with you.
