As a ceramics artist my work has evolved to incorporate a variety of making methods including creating mosaics.

I have developed a range of slip cast ceramics originating from wooden models. I also enjoy exploring the possibilities of paper clay utilizing the new making methods available with this exciting medium.

A major influence on my work has been the landscape, reflecting the variety of moods, light, line and patterns on display. I am especially interested in exploring ideas relating to patchwork, firstly inspired by collections of fields, then incorporating fabric details to enhance the designs. I have been collecting vintage fabrics for some time and I like the new life that can be given to these old, often forgotten pieces.
