How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I work predominantly with willow, which I grow myself or source as locally as possible, I also enjoy incorporating materials I've foraged to add colour and texture to my work. The materials I use are produced with as little negative impact to the natural world as possible to ensure that what I'm creating is sustainable.
Heritage techniques are used throughout my work to create pieces that will stand the test of time whilst also incorporating innovative ideas to push the boundaries of tradition.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am a maker of both traditional and innovative baskets.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I share my time between making baskets to sell, commission work and teaching workshops.
