Tapestry Commissions, tufted rugs and wall hangings

Public and Private Commissions

Jeni Ross is an established designer/maker and commissions form an important part of her work. Each project is different and affords an exciting challenge to combine colour, movement and content and to integrate these sympathetically into a specific location.

Commissioned interior artworks include woven tapestries, tufted textile wall hangings and rugs. Work can be seen in public buildings throughout the UK including Oxford University, hospitals, theatres, schools, museums, a major scientific centre and the Government Art Collection. Private commissions include one off tapestries and tufted rugs.

The medium of textile transforms the design with an additional language of intensity and depth of colour not available in other media. It is this translation of image into a tactile structure that makes it so effective in an architectural setting.

Children respond to faces,  colour  and texture  from a very early age.  They are used to seeing faces  in many different guises - toys, games, books, cartoons. They are used to interpreting simple shapes and exploring with their own imagination and good use of colour helps  people feel more at ease.



My approach was to use all these elements to design a group of images that will appeal to all ages and could be used in different ways according to the specific site.
