I studied A-level ceramics and went on to do foundation at Cambridge Arts and Sciences. I got a place at Falmouth College of Arts but due to my anxiety problems never made it to degree level.
I find working with clay very therapeutic and calming. To me my pieces are like my babies, they can have personalities and I am very proud when a piece lives up to my expectations. I tend to be very self critical.
I have been strongly influenced by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska. I like natural forms that have been simplified.
