Artist's StatementI am inspired by the world around me, particularly flowers, land and seascapes. I love colour and this often determines my choice of materials and techniques, whereas I often start weaving with only a vague idea of the final form. I work with anything from cane, rush and willow to found materials, textiles and paper. I use a range of techniques from stake and strand, plaiting and frame to twining, netting and coiling – producing both functional baskets and more sculptural work.
I completed the City & Guilds Creative Basketry Course at City Lit in London in 2013 – using the Wildflower Meadows at the Olympic Park to inspire my final pieces. The exhibition was reviewed on Homebuildlifer Best of Baskets: City Lit Creative Basketry Exhibition. In 2018 I was made a Yeoman of the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers.
