I initially trained in Ceramics at the University of Wolverhampton, graduating with a BA (Hons) degree. This experience fuelled a life long love for ceramics and I have continued to develop my practice over many years, learning new techniques and sharing my expertise through teaching and enabling others.  My long experience of working as a teacher of art and design exposed me to the work of numerous artists and art forms that have greatly enriched my visual vocabulary. I am now fortunate to be able to explore this vocabulary through the creation of ceramics full time from my studio in  South East London.

My ceramics are made in high-fired (vitrified) stoneware or porcelain and are painted with ceramic compounds and glazed internally. the underglaze colours are applied before the pieces are fired so that they penetrate and permanently bond with the surface of the clay. Pieces are mainly wheel thrown and hand painted and are glazed internally. My jewellery is made from vitrified porcelain and the fittings are made from sterling silver.
I show and sell my work through galleries and ceramic and craft fairs in the UK and Europe.

My interest in making- and wearing - jewellery began as a child when my grandmother often gave me inexpensive costume jewellery that sometimes needed 'mending' - and so the seed was sown….Working on smaller pieces provides me with the opportunity to make quick experiments with ideas for patterns and colour that feed into my larger ceramics.
