Biographical Info

“Born Aldershot, Hampshire 1981, I studied ceramics at Farnham College before embarking on a 10 year career in strictly office admin. In 2010 I decided to reintroduce ceramics back into my life, firstly doing evening classes and then committing to a studio space. I currently work at the Ceramics Coop Studios in New Cross.

My ceramics is intentionally colourful and quirky with a strong influence from Latin American arts. My main focus in recent years has been animals. Working to bring out individual characters by producing one off pieces of nature’s common and more exotic species.

I mostly build using slab technique and using coloured underglazes fired to earthenware temperatures.”
