My work evolves from the twigs, leaves, bark and metal I find in my South London neighbourhood. It’s not exactly foraging, more a case of taking a walk on a windy day, peering in skips, or listening out for chain saws.

The city yields unexpected treasures, a good haul includes brambles, goat willow, beech, rose and birch. Urban flotsam and jetsam also play a part: rope, netting, copper wire and scrap metal.

In the workshop the materials lead, wherever their textures and qualities take me. My weaving techniques can be traditional, or random and experimental. Many of the pieces may alter as they settle and age.

The variety of materials and methods I use mean that each piece, whether functional or sculptural, will be always be unique.
