I am a designer and maker at heart, and specialise in large scale sculpture and bookbinding.  I love working with willow and have a great affection for paper sculpture, but happily take on other materials when the project calls for it! I like working on a large scale, and also relish precision and attention to detail.  

 

I undertake commissions for indoor and outdoor events, window displays, exhibitions and installations, and celebrations.  I enjoy working with communities to create work, and collaborating with other artists.  I can work with people of all ages to share skills and create work that exceeds their expectations.

 

Check out my gallery for a taste of what I do, or visit my specialist bookbinding website at www.becbritainbooks.uk.
