Willow sculptures

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 endeavour to create work that is individual and has a life of its own.

 I also create less detailed artworks some of which are available in my shop as well as local galleries and shows and I also create bespoke art work to commission

If you are interested in finding out more about any of the artwork simply click on the photograph for further details
