A B O U T M E
My love for art started at a young age. As a child who excelled at day dreaming (and still do), I was always drawing imaginary worlds or involved in all kinds of craft work.
My love for clay however didn't start until much later in my adult life. I was working as a graphic designer then and feeling very much at crossroads. When I took a hiatus from work, I enrolled in a clay workshop at my local community centre and fell in love with handbuilding. Creating a tactile piece from a drawing was such an exciting prospect for me and rather moreish.
My creations are small-scale and are non-functional. They start off as slabbuilt sculptures with streamlined forms which take on a personality and expression of their own as time progresses. Some are poignant, others just a little bit kooky and some evolve completely into the unexpected. They are like friends whom one has a soft spot for even though they aren't quite perfect. I love what I do and am continously learning as I go. Nothing makes me happier than seeing another person connect emotionally with my work.
