I have always loved making.
From an early age I would always be knitting, crocheting, making cross stitch and borrowing my Mum’s old Singer sewing machine to make dolls clothes. At the age of 12 I remember my Nan buying my sister and I a knitting machine and we would spend many hours knitting up master pieces! Although on leaving school I did not realise my true vocation in life, it now seems natural that I have ended up working in the craft industry.
In 2007 I embarked on an Art & Design course, followed by a Ceramics Degree. Since then I have been working as a Ceramicist & Teacher, selling my work in Galleries and exhibiting at Sculpture Exhibitions; Teaching and running workshops.
For 8 years I was running a busy community studio in North Devon. I have recently moved my studio back home so I can concentrate on my own work; as well as small group lessons and workshops.
