Having taught Art and Design for 14 years, I made the decision in 2010 to leave teaching and start my own business as a mixed media artist. I work mainly with porcelain clay, but I also enjoy using crank and stoneware.
My inspiration can come from so many different areas, often from nature or simple daily observations that can inspire me to incorporate these into my pieces.
The fragile qualities of porcelain enable me to work in detail, creating textures and something unique. Each handmade piece goes through many stages and can be fired up to three times. My porcelain pieces, e.g. bowls, dishes, brooches, plaques, often incorporate my surface pattern designs. I hope I will continue finding and sharing this beauty in nature, even its imperfections which I am particularly drawn to. My work is constantly evolving and you can keep up with the latest developments on my Facebook page.
