I am a ceramic artist living and working in the Ribble Valley for the last 25 years. I make figurative, sculptural work. Initially, inspiration derived solely from awareness of the effects of weathering and erosion on the countryside. I realized a parallel existed between the effects of time on the environment and the relationship of a couple on their journey through life. The impact of emotional experience and relentless ageing of the body all make their mark on the human form just as the weather on the landscape. Through my work I translate these observations to the figures through texture, nuance and body language.
