I use clay to make figurative sculptures and illustrated vessels and am always looking for meaning in the random and irrelevant. In my current work I am having fun exploring character through pose, facial expression and sometimes text. I enjoy the suggestions of stories that develop and the dynamics within a group of figures. My intention is to draw you in, to make you smile, to fire your imagination.
I have taught locally for many years, running the Art Department at Chiltern Edge School and the Ceramics Department at The Henley College for a while. My most recent post was in the Art department at St Bartholomew’s School in Newbury. I now spend most of my time in my studio creating commission pieces and work which I sell online, at craft fairs and through galleries such as New Ashgate Gallery in Farnham and New Brewery Arts in Cirencester.
