I handbuild ceramics from my small studio at home in Pendeen. I use earthenware clay and bright glazes to produce small to larger colourful, pieces. I like my work to be both functional and decorative. I started my career in illustration and I think this reflects in my work in a loose form.

I spend a lot of time outside either rowing and on the sea to walking off the beaten track, I try to draw on this in simple ways, sometimes just through colour or by simplifying my observations onto the surface of the piece.
