Current Work

Current Work

The energy of landscape informs my ceramic, its influence echoed rhythmically in the marks drawn, painted and scribed directly into each form.

The creative process for me is intuitive and responsive resulting in the creation of ceramic which both reflects and shares a very personal and emotional sense of belonging with my surrounding landscape.
