I work primarily as a ceramicist and painter. I am experimental in my use of media to produce series of works inspired by ancient landscape, wild seas, funghi, fossils,rocks & shells. During the last six years I have re established my practice as a ceramicist.
In June 2011 I was awarded 2nd prize in 31 CICA International Ceramic Competition at the Museum of Ceramics, Alcora, Spain and have again been honoured this year with the Second prize in 35CICA .I have been the only British finalist in their International competition for four of the last six years. I aim to push the boundaries of the ceramic materials I use.This is demonstrated in my most recent vessels which are hand built and eggshell thin and my latest wall pieces.
I also paint in Pastel or in oils on canvas and produce limited edition archival pigment ink photographs.
I have been elected a Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
My porcelain pieces are pinched and carved using the simplest of tools and my fingers. The translucency and the ethereal quality of my high fired porcelain work is in contrast to some of my textured bold canvases.
