I design and create highly stylised, organic stoneware pieces. My work is influenced by my passion for the natural world and a desire to create pieces that reflect the beauty of forests, stream and oceans.

I am really fortunate to have the best of both worlds regarding making and firing my pieces. I have a studio and a small electric kiln at home and to make and gas fire large pieces I have an Artist’s Pass’ for the Midlands Art Centre here in Birmingham.
My current work is stoneware and I hand build all of work.
I trained as a Cartographer and discovered clay later in life when I took some amazing classes at the Midlands Art Centre in Birmingham.
