Introduction

Ely Cathedral
ready for Story Times

I work as a textile and environmental artist in a wide variety of settings and communities. My work is made in conversation with people and places, for installations and exhibition as well as running workshops to suit the places and people involved.

I use found or adapted materials for works that are placed in the landscape, in galleries or in public venues.

I live in the fens of East Anglia in the UK, where willow is easily available for making baskets and sculpture. The landscape, light and dry weather encourage me to spend time outside as much as possible.
