I came to Ceramics as a mature student, completing my BA in 3D Design (Ceramics) at the University of the West of England in 1994.

Thanks to my years of experience as a pottery technician at Stroud College, my understanding of process underpinned my development as a potter which became a full time occupation once I had built my own workshop.

I have always found particular inspiration in hand building pots which evolve as families as I make them, taking shape as almost human forms.
