These woven tapestries are inspired by glimpses and memories of journeys, whether long train journeys or a trip to the local café. The start for this work was a set of journeys from Exeter to Edinburgh and to East Anglia. It took me through wonderfully diverse terrain and it was full of the colour yellow of Oilseed Rape.

I watched as the field sizes and divisions changed, a dry stonewall, a hedge, a wooden fence and huge fields with no divisions.
 The work is about the surface, its depth, its construction, the quiet, crisp whites, the dense warm yellow, sensuous dark soil with lozenge shaped stone walls with bright yellow lichen patches. The spaces are important, as are the gaps between.Project funded by Arts Council England.
