Artist's Statement

Margo Selby is an internationally renowned textile artist and designer, based in Whitstable, Kent. Her design philosophy is focused on pushing the boundaries of weaving to create contemporary stylish fabrics for a range of textile applications, uniting the very best weavers and high quality fibers to produce beautifully crafted products.

 “I draw influence from the visual world around me; architectural forms, graphic design, pattern, scale and colour grouping. Colour is a driving force behind my work. I play with the juxtaposition of simple forms, manipulating the use of both complementary and contrasting colour palettes, applying a combination of colour theory and instinct. 

I’m interested in the relationship between man and machine, hand and industry, craft and technology. The loom and the disciplined nature of weaving provides boundaries and constraints which can be pushed against. The orderly nature of the craft of weaving is reflected in the systematised designs’
