Toni Banks Sculptures

I am a 3D mixed media artist, living in Crossens Southport.

I have been creative since an early age, when my grandmother taught me to sew & knit. She was my idol & also taught me how to be frugal & how to recycle/upcycle many things that would normally be thrown away.

Over the last 30 years I have learned to knit, crochet, paint, stumpwork embroider, needle felt, polymer clay model & sew. I love trying out new craft techniques & most recently combining different crafts to create my sculptures.

I am inspired by nature, architecture & the sea.

My sculptures include locally found driftwood from the beaches nearby. I also use scraps that usually end up in landfill, including leftovers from shoe makers & upholsterers.

I am very pleased to be an artist at Lancashire Makers & hope everyone enjoys my sculptures, as much as I enjoy making them.
