Dan Withey has one of those relentlessly amiable personalities that never fails to get past your defences. Inevitably you’re going to like the guy so there’s really no point in putting it off. Perhaps you’re in a really bad mood? Let’s say you’re a balloon of vitriol waiting to burst. Dan notices this, puts you at ease with some self deprecating humour and pretty soon you’ve forgotten what your problem was and you’re feeling good again. It works every time, just like his art.

Asha,,,,, bathing near the waters is also a water feature, and pregnant relaxing in her environment, designed and made by me from old salvaged fencing wires, door screen and broken glass. My work is collected by an artist and art collector, as well as the public. I love the aspect of recycling and simplicity - I don't use electricity to make my pieces, just the earth.
