Bec is a textile artist specialising in the design and production of hand-tufted rugs. Her guiding philosophy comes from William Morris: ‘Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful and believe to be beautiful.  ’The creation of a rug is a perfect blend of yin and yang. The hand-dyeing of the wool yarn is a tactile and sensual process, which yields lovely variegated shades that, when blended into the final piece, emerge like wood grains in a beautiful piece of timber. 

The making of the rug is more industrial. Bec often dons safety gear and climbs a scaffold to work on her vertical canvasses using a hand-held tufting gun powered with air and electricity. Available for sale: rugs, mats, scarves, rug wool, rug-making supplies.

The full process is documented on my website along with the commission process.  If you wish to make an appointment outside of open studio hours to talk about a commission this can be arranged via email or phone.
