I grew up in Bedfordshire but every summer the family would holiday in Cornwall in a little sleepy village as was, called Holywell Bay. I remember long summers of hot sand, swirling waves and deep blue endless sky’s.
I have in my life lived in Cornwall a number of times but finally moved here for good in 1994.
I moved down to go to the Art School at Falmouth and eventually graduated with an honors degree in Studio Ceramics in 2000.
I now have a family and still live and work in Falmouth.
In 2008 I completed a PGCE and since then I have been a community educator running art classes in the community .
I have always felt a strong link to the landscape whether living in Cornwall or in Scotland the land and the footprints the ancients left on the land have aways inspired me.
The Art that I make is eclectic i make ceramics, textiles, pictures and crafts and I love them all… But i also love music so I do a little of that to.
All of my Textile and Ceramic work has a core of belief and symbol in the same way our ancestors carved in to the land my work always has some form of mark making, symbols or shapes that create a richness of surface.
Whether textiles or ceramics my work is a ritual in the making and a votive offering to the Gods.
