From the buzz of the morning traffic to the fading evenings and dim lit streets, the energy of the city creates a treasure trove of light, shapes and pattern. Annabel draws inspiration from these elements, and from her passion for her urban environment. Her dynamic and intelligent woven works respond to the high intensity of the city.

Introducing CAD technologies to the fiercely traditional technique of hand weaving, Annabel creates panels and lit pieces that house warm LED lights to illuminate your space. Weaving open structures to create hung lengths of cloth that inform printed and engraved Perspex works.

Through a series of photographs – manipulated by shaking the camera or overexposing an image – she creates a base of subject matter that she can translate onto the loom. These manipulated images and the manipulated weave structures that emerge, give the work its diversity.

Light inspired by light.
