Since graduating, with a design degree, specializing in ceramics. In 1992, I had an unexpected career change, designing textiles and nightwear. In 2010 I started a pottery night class and was soon hooked again. In March 2012 I fired up my own kiln for the first time. Themes around animals, their behaviour and place in myth, folklore and poetry interest me. Print has been influential and I use lino print blocks to press relief images into slabs of clay to develop into forms. I also create quirky creatures from pinch pots which are carved and patterned with found objects and stamps.
