Artists Statement

Artists Statement

I have lived and worked in a remote rural area for 25 years with my family, where I draw inspiration for my ceramics and drawings. Throughout my personal and professional life art and the environment are intertwined, the affinity I have with nature has always nourished and informed my work

A lifetime of study and 25 years as a self employed Artist/maker, is fed by my empathy for the natural world. Since childhood in Scotland I have been exploring the hills and seas, at first with my father and then on my own, as a Hill walker, mountaineer and sea kayaker. I love wilderness journeys and have made many both in this country and abroad.

Although my work is solitary, the experiences that I have are shared with many through my drawings and ceramics, fierce, tender and at time comic manifestations of my lifelong Passion.
