I am a fine artist / ceramicist, currently making slip decorated earthenware ceramics.
I have a studio workshop near my home in the Peak District. I have worked in the field of art and design, teaching in schools, writing and editing for examination boards, advising on art and design curriculum development for government bodies, running workshops, and have always continued my own practice. This includes painting, drawing, installation, photography, and the use of many media. More recently I have returned to ceramics and my focus is on slipware. The simplicity and fluidity of the marks appeal to me.
My work is informed by interests in the land, the environment, environmental issues, both local, global and cultural.
