I was born in Ripon, North Yorkshire and have always had a passion for art and the natural world. I studied Zoology at Manchester University but never gave up my art! Ten years ago after a weekend willow sculpting course my artistic practice took on a different direction.

Working with a natural material opened up a new world and I consequently went on to learn the different techniques of basketry.  I enjoy using the traditional skills of basketry and adding my own flare to the process.

I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside nestled between the moors & dales.  I work with six varieties of English willow grown in Yorkshire & Somerset.

My willow workshop provides the perfect base to store, soak and create my work.
