Willa Hilditch works between mediums and often starts her creative process by making sculptural forms and notes which she derives primarily from her routine walks to her studio. 

When walking Hilditch observes the city in flux. The routines of others are evident in the existence of their waste; from the discarded rubbish to the residual marks left on surfaces to the redundant cable wiring protruding from walls etc. The forms that she makes out of paper respond to our urban space and more recently she can been paralleling these ideas with those in early renaissance Sienese paintings.
