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
