Victoria's childhood was dominated by plants, flowers, and animals as a result of her Father's floristry business and pet shop. It was a natural progression for Victoria to enter the floristry business where she stayed for some 25 years developing her own business and supporting that of her partner's, Ian.
Alongside the floristry, Victoria had a passion for wood work and completed a variety of courses which allowed her to master pyrography. Victoria’s fascination with willow sculptures began some years ago when she first encountered them at an Agricultural Show. She was captivated by the possibility of combining her artistic flair of floristry and mastery of woodwork.
She currently spends her time working from home in her Willow Barn creating sculptures inspired by her very own models. Her work takes inspiration from the countryside and alongside her farmyard muses she has created a variety of sculptures including pigs, sheep, dragonflies, ducks and chickens. In addition to creating more abstract pieces for garden decoration such as large spheres and wigwams.
With a strong familiarity with the natural environment Victoria is continuously nurturing and expanding her willow livestock to include a whole host of animal sculptures. In addition to working with clients and commissioning personalised pieces such as tree sculptures for interior decorations and even a life size polar bear!
