How would you describe your approach to
By working with foraged, natural materials I hope to encourage others to renew their connection with nature and to respond in a playful and open way to the familiar and beautiful materials.
What inspires your own work?
I walk and forage daily in the countryside and am deeply influenced by woodlands and the changing seasons. I seek out the irregular, fine detail in materials, that others might overlook or discard.
