My name is Hayley Jones, I am a self taught Artist and live and work in Clevedon, North Somerset.
I am inspired by nature and wildlife and diversified from painting into 3d wire sculptures in 2014, using single strand coiled wires.
The move has been amazing and the sculptures are proving to be very popular, working from my home studio in the garden I have lots of inspiration from the birds I see in the garden and also from the Riverbank I back onto.
I enjoy making the larger one-off designs and these are often influenced by the old recycled items I find to mount the sculptures on, such as old wooden gates, sleepers, buffers and interesting slices of wood. I use many old garden tools and galvanised watering cans for the smaller birds too.
I rarely have time to paint now but a small selection of my paintings have been reproduced and are available as box canvas Giclee prints from artvue.co.uk
2021 has been a good year with the installation of one of my largest pieces, a commission of a Sea Eagle made from Stainless Steel Wire at a New School in Yatton North Somerset.
