Jennie Moncur

British artist, Jennie Moncur, is best known for her hand-woven contemporary tapestry wall-hangings. Her 'jigsaw' compositions demonstrate a characteristic love of material and colour, whilst her highly-skilled use of traditional 'Gobelin' weaving techniques show an implicit link between process and expression.

Tapestries are available from the artist's collection or can be made to commission.
