I completed the Design Craft National Diploma at Bath City College in 2001 and continued my studies at Bath Spa University, gaining a first class honours degree in ceramics in 2008. I joined the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen as an Associate Member in 2009.
As well as taking part in exhibitions with the Guild, I also exhibit and sell my work in several galleries.

I have spent most of my life living in Bath so some of my designs are based around the city, but I now live in Bridport, Dorset near the Jurassic Coast and spend a lot of time out and about walking Trixie, our Tibetan Terrier. Both the landscapes and seascapes are beautiful and very inspiring - the only trouble is that I spend too much time out and not enough time making!

I enjoy spending time in Museums. I love to look for more unusual pieces especially those which are less sophisticated, charming and amusing. My work is influenced by these - and in particular Delft Flower Bricks.

My work is screen printed using oxides, mainly traditional cobalt blue, and hand built.
After the first firing, the pieces are glazed and re-fired. Then the magic happens, as the beautiful colours of the oxides shines through...
Most of my work is then finished with extravagant gold lustre.

My original print design is based on vintage "Sunday Best" tea sets and other domestic items from my personal surroundings, but overprinted so that much of the detail is obliterated leaving only a hint of the original design. I made this design when I was still at College and I now have 8 designs to choose from, most of them hand drawn.

My cups and jugs are approximately 12cm tall and a medium flower brick measures around 6 x 9 x 4.5cm. The tallest cylinder vases can be up to 25-30cm and my small trays about 6 x 9cm.

The majority of my work is priced between £25 and £75
