My aim is to make objects that arrest attention and invite handling.

Current avenues of exploration include light and shade, simplicity and complexity, group dynamics and line-making. I’m experimenting with basic forms and their variations. I'm also enjoying incorporating locally-found materials into my work.

I'm based in Brampton, Northeast Cumbria, and am a regular exhibitor at local events and galleries. I've also shown work in galleries in Northern and Southwest England, and Scotland. I'm a member of Northern Potters Association and Bensham Grove Pottery. See my events page for the latest news.

I have a BA in modern languages and an MA in Southeast Asia Area Studies. After working in the fields of education and environmental justice, I studied ceramics at Newcastle College, completing a FdA in Contemporary Ceramic Practice in 2011. I'm currently studying for a MA in Contemporary Art and Archaeology at the University of Highlands and Islands.
