Biography

I enjoy the creativity of basketmaking as a counterbalance to my regular work, having completed the City and Guilds in Creative basketry at the City Lit in London in 2011.

I have worked with a range of natural materials such as willow, cane and rush and man-made and recycled materials such as paper, card and packing tape. I am currently growing 26 varieties of willow locally. The cycle of weeding, cutting and sorting the willow is time consuming but I am now weaving with beautiful willow and experimenting mixing the hues of the different varieties. This year I have been making plaited border baskets and log baskets and I have experimented with catalan style baskets and roped borders. I intend to produce a new variation on my popular Christmas tree hanging decorations and will make a variety of small reindeer.
2017 will be my sixth trail as a full member of the North Bristol Artists and  I will be showing in my own venue along with artists Robin Page and Thomas Page. I hope that you will come and visit us.
