As an established, award-winning textile artist, Jacqueline James creates hand-woven, custom dyed rugs and wall-hangings for public and private collections. From her studio in York she blends traditional techniques with contemporary design style to create luxurious and functional textiles for distinctive interiors. Jacqueline specialises in collaborating with artists, private collectors and interior designers to create bespoke commissions and textile art. Each exclusive piece is made with natural and durable materials including wool, cotton and linen. Pleasing colour combinations, striking geometric patterns and smooth gradients are distinctive elements of her woven designs. To create interesting surface patterns, Jacqueline regularly custom dyes the designer yarns before the weaving process. Her commissioned work is in many private collections in the UK and internationally. Major public commissions include weaving for Westminster Abbey, York Minster and The British Library. In her current textile collection Jacqueline is excited to incorporate the use of natural dyes.
