I began my ceramics experience as a studio potter developing a range of domestic oxidised stoneware.
Following my graduation as a mature student from Norwich School of Art and Design, I have become more interested in sculptural forms, using clay for more figurative and abstract pieces.

More recently I have worked with the Raku process, and enjoy the simplicity of the glazes using the black of the smoked clay body as integral to the design. In my recent Raku work I have made flattened forms which allow division into abstract shapes, using simple colours.

I like to develop a particular theme in a body of work, but each piece is unique.

This year I have exhibited at Cley 15; Emanuel College Cambridge, and the Norwich Cathedral Hostry .

I am a member of the Anglian Potters Association and exhibit with them twice yearly. I am also a member and exhibit with Norwich Contemporary Art Society.

Other Exhibitions include: Innovations Cambridge, Norwich Festival Open Studios, Wymondham Art Centre and Babylon Gallery, Ely.
