I learnt to throw pots on a potters wheel at school in Cambridge when I was 14, and have been in love with the process ever since. After completing a National Diploma and an HND in ceramics and jewellery, I worked as a potters apprentice for a few years before establishing my own studio. In 2001 I helped to set up White House Arts, a private arts centre in Cambridge. After 11 years of making and teaching I won a scholarship to go back to university and study industrial ceramics. Since then I have regularly exhibited at the Country Living fairs, 100%Design and the New York Gift Fair, as a guest of the Crafts Council. 

I now work in Cambridge making fine porcelain tableware and running workshops in ceramics and crafts.
