Combining a background in Fine Arts and a love of clay, my passion for art and particularly painting is creatively expressed in my Ceramic Vessels.
About ten years ago I started working with clay and enjoy hand-building, wheelwork, as well as the use of moulds. These techniques enable me to explore the diversity of clay. I mainly work with Porcelain paper-clay as it lends itself to the sculptural dimension of my pieces.
My surface decorations are created through layering colours at different stages of the drying and firing process.
Nature, my garden and everyday life are my inspiration. Artists like Chagall, Van Gogh, Matisse and Monet influence much of my imagery and colours.
Several of my Ceramic Vessels are in private collections around the world.
