Our inner selves recognize the connection between us and nature and responds to this, we recieve an auratic it fills the well of goodness inside and this responds by making us feel better. The work was inspired by the work of a Psychologist Dr Nicola Street, working at my Local University her research presented my question can art make you feel good My Photography grew into Environmental Art and I began making Public Art sculptures from living willow woven into structures. 16 years of Public art practice for my company willowarts.co.uk. building big living willow sculptures across the UK and share our love of working with nature and ecology.
