I create original, one-off hand stitched contemporary tapestries to bring warmth to a room and to serve as a centrepiece. I stitch with wool as a painter may apply paint to a canvas: in a way that cannot be prescribed or repeated. Each tapestry is an original design, taking weeks or months to produce and containing tens of thousands of individual stitches. The result is a vibrant, original artwork that is tactile in nature, technically accomplished, and modern in design. When examined closely, each tapestry appears as a harmonious collaboration of pixels.
I am inspired by contemporary interior design, currently Moroccan art and architecture. My earlier works were influenced by the intricacies of flora and the possibilities of representing the intricate details of light, shade and colour of single petals in stitches.
My tapestries are displayed under one of two galleries here: Moroccan Tapestries or Floral Tapestries.
My tapestries are available for sale. Should you see a piece you like but would prefer a variation in design or colour, I would be happy to create your own commissioned original piece to suit your taste and interior.
Next exhibition: Ghorzah (‘Stitch’) as part of Sharjah Islamic Arts Festival, UAE.
Sharjah Art Museum, 13 December 2017 – 23 January 2018.
