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