About

I create contemporary showpiece willow animal sculptures which are both lifesize and realistic.  Each piece is woven by hand and completely unique. This process begins by personally growing over 40 different varieties of willow to enable me to choose from a large palette of colours and textures.  I carefully select each rod and use a dense, random weave to create form with detail, giving a feeling of movement and injecting a hint of expression. My signature is in the detail!
