Regency Woman on a Donkey

This sculpture is one of 5 groups I have created for The Heights of Abraham in Matlock Bath for their Willow Sculpture Trail in 2022. The donkey was the way wealthy visitors used to climb the very steep hill to get to the pleasure gardens. Today there is a cable car to the top.

Caroline Gregson
Willow Sculpture Artist

I have loved and been inspired by the natural world since I was a child and the ability to work as a Willow Artist and make willow sculptures representing the essence of animals, birds and other living forms brings me great pleasure. I love to represent movement and vitality in my work. My willow sculptures appear to have just paused in their setting before they are ready to move on. One of the nicest things anyone has said about my animal sculptures is that you can always see where they are looking!
