Painted paper bias weave sculpture
I am inspired by the world around me, particularly flowers, land and seascapes. Colour and materials are often my starting point and my choice of materials is usually determines the technique. Form is often only a vague idea when I start weaving. I work with everything from cane, rush and willow to found materials, textiles and paper. I use a range of techniques including plaiting, twining, coiling and netting to stake and strand, frame basketry and random weave – producing both functional baskets and more sculptural pieces.
