I was born in Gloucestershire near the Forest Of Dean enjoying a rural landscape and community.
On moving to South Devon around 1993 I began to extend my talents in the arts, painting and print making, finally gaining a HND in ceramics and glass at Plymouth Collage of Art and Design in 1998.
I Quickly set up a ceramic workshop near Kingsbridge and in 2000, became an elected member of the British Craft Potters Association, elected as a Devon Guild member and joined the West country Potters association, and enjoyed supporting Salcombe Art Club.
It was at Salcombe Art Club that I had my first taste of teaching ceramics, “Creative Hand Building” and Raku. The enjoyment of teaching led me to take teaching qualifications and running classes in Adult Education as well as in my workshop then through the “Big Hands Little Hands,” Devon Guild's school outreach programme.
My workshop had now expanded to accommodate a growing demand for my work which has been shown as far as Cumbria to Cornwall including London’s Victoria & Albert Museum London.
To date I am still creating individual works of art and exhibiting at the Devon Guild in Bovey Tracey.
