I grew up and live in the small northern town of Todmorden, nestled in the heart of the Pennines , Yorkshire, England. The rouged landscape of steep sided valleys and Moors and the ever changing seasons has inspired a deep love and fascination of nature and the natural elements. I use this landscape in my work as a willow sculptor, both for materials and inspiration.
I'm a passionate environmentalist and use the Permaculture Ethics of People Care, Earth Care and Fair Shares in all the work I undertake from the materials I use to the people and organizations I works with.
I have a Workshop & Gallery, Creative with Nature based in Todmorden where I have regular exhibitions from other local artists and I regularly teach and work with a variety of organizations to deliver bespoke willow pieces and projects that utilize and celebrate the unique diversity found in the North of England.
