My journey in ceramics started over 25 years now, and I have become more and more passionate as the time goes by. My story lies in making free-form, sculptural pieces and wearable art ceramics.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

I hand-built my ceramics from stoneware and porcelain clays. I have a penchant for varied and dynamic styles and often add found objects to my pieces.

I find it deeply satisfying working with clay because it's supple, it accepts mark making and it is easily shaped. ​

I am inspired by everything around me, but I am mostly drawn to the beauty in eroded, time honoured surfaces, and shapes that endured their journey through time, and marked by the experiences they been through!

I have two distinct styles: one comes out when I'm making sculptures, and the other a rather more 'colourful' one... My leaf series fall into the latter category.

I'm working on developing my monochrome ceramics which is now my signature style.

​My work is diverse: painting, designing and making objects of art using mixed media but clay has always had that special place for me.
