I am presently producing a range of ceramics inspired primarily by bird form and movement.

I begin my work by drawing quick sketches from nature to capture a striking form I then refine these drawings into a

design on paper, trying not to lose the initial expressive action which rough sketches can capture.

Once designed I sculpt the form out of a solid block of plaster before casting it in ceramic.

It is important that the work lifts the spirit. I try to make work which is beautiful to see and to touch.

I studied ceramics for six years gaining both a BA and an MA degree and then lectured for five years at Camberwell College of Arts whilst establishing myself as a studio potter.

I now concentrate all my energy into designing and producing my own ceramics.

My designs are collected worldwide and I have examples of my work in major museums across the UK.
