Working with willow to create sculptural work is a pleasure and a passion it connects me with the land. I love the challenge that it brings. I endeavor to create work that is individual and has a life of its own.
Until recently most of my works were shown at various art shows, exhibitions, and events.
Over the last few months with the restrictions that have been in place, I have now also been selling my sculptures online and once we are able to they will be available in galleries in Wickham near Fareham and Burley in the New Forest.
( further details to follow)
I also create less detailed works as examples for my workshops some of which are available in my shop.
