I'm an artist based in Manchester UK. I've had an online presence since 2011 with the creation craft based videos on youtube. I taught myself how to craft the tree sculptures as a hobby to help me relax in my spare time. I found a following via social media who enjoyed my work and I branched out... Pun intended ;)
