After many years working with stained glass I was bitten by the Basketry Bug and enrolled on the fabulous 2 year City Lit basketry course which I completed in 2019. I enthusiastically absorbed every second of the fabulous teaching there and am keen to continue to further my knowledge and skillset.
Living in the space where East London overlaps Epping Forest, and with my studio in Valentines Park, I am in my element in the trees. I love to work with my hands and experiment with the possibilities within natural materials, but then I will play with something unexpected, such as rubber, on the odd occasion too.
Not one to be boxed in, I love to see where exploration takes me .
