From a little girl, I have been fascinated by crashing waves, autumn leaves and stormy skies. I loved to press flowers, collect shells and take bark rubbings.
Many years later I discovered clay and the sheer joy of working with this soft, sensual, responsive material. It was a true revelation that I could reproduce the wonderful shapes, colours and textures of the natural world and the beauty of forests, streams and oceans, but with an abstract, highly stylised, twist.
Over the last two years I have established a studio in my garden and have an electric kiln in an outbuilding. My commute to work is just twelve steps and it is a sheer joy to work hearing birds singing and teh tall trees rustling in the wind.
Since I started working in my garden I have developed a passion for gardening. A fabulous hobby and at times a delightful distraction.
