Willow Rowlands lives and works in Manchester.
Her practice is an exercise in elongating the experience of finding and touching things that are nice. She attends lectures and submits work for modules, but this hasn’t put her off.

The artist enjoys studio lamps, scalpels, contact microphones and many other things.
