Drawing on many years experience of traditional basketry Lizzie now concentrates
on making contemporary sculptural forms. She grows and harvests her own willow
and other woods locally to where she lives in SW Scotland.
'I take my influences from the Galloway countryside where I live and work. I am surrounded by hills, lochs, larch trees and heather, the essence of which I try to recapture in my work.
The pieces I create often take the form of a simple shape; a ring, a sphere or a bird. I try to express the complex in as simple a way as possible, the natural materials sometimes having a quiet and still effect on the viewer.'
