Willow Artist & Contemporary Basketmaker
Woven willow basket group

I am fascinated by nature and endlessly curious about structures discovered in my garden, the countryside, on the beach…
Living at the northern end of the Chilterns, I am inspired by the geology and history of this gentle rolling landscape.
I use traditional and contemporary basketmaking techniques to create form using natural materials that I have cultivated and also gathered.
My aim is to draw attention to the simple pleasure to be gained by looking at the beauty and complexity of natural things.
I make work on all scales for inside and out: willow garden structures, wall pieces, hanging baskets, gathering baskets, mixed media sculptural pieces.
I also teach, demonstrate skills, and take on commissioned work for organisations and private clients.
