I am inspired by the strength, suppleness and adaptability of willow. My baskets and wall-sculptures draw on the intrinsic qualities of natural materials to adapt to, support and nurture our lives.
Their resilience and flexibility hold space, both for contemplation and to carry our burdens with beauty, balance and ease. They embrace our humanity. They allow untold expression through rhythm, repetition and infinite variation.
The integration and re-purposing of discarded man-made materials signals hope. Hope of our moving towards a way of living that is truly regenerative.
As the Founder of Wellington Road Art Studios, I see creative expression as a vital part of living well. I seek to provide the space and joyful connection for this to flourish and grow.
