I am a Hampshire based artist and sculptor who creates with willow and other natural materials. I am self taught having started down this rabbit hole over 20 years ago now when I first made something out of willow at a music festival in Devon.
Like many other artists, creating is more than just a way to earn a living it is also a passion and a way of life and I have well and truly caught the bug.
I use a variety of different willows which are sustainably grown in the U.K some of which I grow myself, I prefer to use as little metal as I can, and only use it where it is needed for added strength for example for bird or deer legs, or when it is appropriate to do so for example if it is going into a public space
I am as equally at home making abstract organic shapes as I am making the realistic or quirky characters that I am known for. I endeavour to create artwork that is individual, unique and has a life of its own and it is always a delight.
