I trained at Cardiff Art School in 1989 with a 1:1 in Fine Art, following on for a Postgraduate and MA in Printmaking at Wimbledon School of Art between 1991 – 1994. I have also worked as a silversmith supplying craft shops with silver and gold jewellery.

In 2014 I discovered a new passion with clay. I am inspired by the magical fluidity of the clay itself. My work shown are pieces made with slab, they all bear my trademark of an unusual and distinctive surface texture that resembles wood grain or the wet sand by the sea. The forms are always for practical use that take centre stage together in a quiet understated way.

The glazes are nearly always a chalky peppermint green or soft matt white slip that again resembles the ripples in the sand after the sea has gone out.
