Having spent many years as a photographic stylist sourcing beautiful objects made by others; I had a yearning to create some of my own. I began by experimenting with plants from my garden and went on to forage natural materials from further afield, before completing the two-year basketry course at City Lit.
I endeavour to create baskets that express the movement and freedom of the plant world using traditional weaving techniques to bind them. I find motivation in the form, colour and texture of trees with their combination of strength and fragility.
