2016 Artist: Denise Redmond

“My pieces are meant to be worn or used in everyday life: hats, shawls, scarves, coasters, bags or simple table ornaments. They are elegant reflections of a simpler time. I also blend and hand spin natural fibres from alpaca, sheep, other animals and silk.
I prefer to work with natural fibres and rarely repeat designs. Most of my inspiration for weaving comes from the interplay of colour I see in nature or from combinations of manmade objects. Weaving and spinning offer me ways to paint with fibre in three dimensional forms.”
