I love to create and produce varied ceramic pieces using a variety of clay, techniques and finishes.

Fine white porcelain slipcast coffee cups,ovenproof stoneware platters with zingy splashes of colour, animal sculptures and fine broaches to name just a few. My inspiration comes from nature and a love of interior and architectural designs. I even have a pair of slipcast lobster corbels created after sculpting while on holiday in Cornwall, bringing costal creatures back to landlocked fens. There is a sense of fun in my work and aside from slipcasting no two pieces are the same. It has been said that you never know what you are going to get when you visit. It is sure to be a warm welcome!

I have studied ceramics locally, at Central Saint Martins school of art, in Stoke on Trent and with Hazel Reeves and Keziah Burt both celebrated portrait sculptors.
