My main preoccupation is with making decorative wall panels and firing them successfully. Currently fine quality Porcelain is used, it fascinates me as it combines fragility with great strength as it has to withstand high firing temperatures. The same themes are re-worked continuously - trees, leaves and flowers used graphically in a simple, direct way. Recently I have been working with extruded forms - using my usual imagery to decorate them.
The technique used is simple as slabs are used for the wall panels, these are rolled out to the desired thickness, textured and slowly dried until they are firm enough for me to draw on. The combination of texture and the precise quality of my designs work well together.

We were awarded Lottery funding for a series of mobile making workshops in the Birmingham and Worcester areas. More workshops resulted from an exhibition at Himley Hall "Twentieth Century Keepsakes" For the "Year of the Artist"we were funded to do a group residency at the Jaguar Car Factory Coventry resulted in an Assemblage made in perspex and metal based on observations and research made in the factory.
Commissioned to design and make a series of wall panels for 2 luxury cruise liners.
