When making my work I have a sense of archaeology, that I am excavating both a character and their narrative. I enjoy discovering the ways in which these stories can be relatable.
The figures may be in the guise of people or animals, yet there is an animation that unifies them. It is this essence that I seek through expression and gesture, between thought, hands and the material, leaving a trace of surface marks that portrait common honesty.
Graduating in 2000 from Wolverhampton University, I built my practice through exhibiting work within the UK and at international ceramics festivals in China and Japan.
Receiving a scholarship from the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust in 2012, I went on to complete my MA in ceramics and glass at The Royal College of Art and am now based in London.
