Graduating in 1981 with a BA Hons. in Ceramics I have been involved with pottery and teaching art throughout my career. I moved to Oxfordshire in 2009 after a long period in the North-west and now enjoy the more rural setting. I am currently developing my ideas for sculptural vase forms in clay. My pots are intended to be visually enjoyable and tactile. My influences are manifold but I expect ultimately derive from shapes, forms, textures, lines and colours found in nature and the world we live in.
