I am an artist, educator, printmaker & potter . For me, the act of mark making whilst printmaking and sketching surface pattern designs are of equal importance to the form of my pots. I grew up in the 1960s in a household surrounded by geometric fifties wallpaper, colourful fabrics, Midwinter tea sets with scratchy Jessie Taite designs and ever-changing pictures on the walls borrowed from the local library. The influences from this era are evident in my surface pattern designs on my ceramic pieces which are applied to the pots by slip trailing, printing, sgraffito and burnishing .
I will be exhibiting with a group of gorgeous artists called 'Art in Wharf Street' in Sally Larke's beautiful garden and at the Coach House Gallery from Thursday 30th June to Saturday 1st July 2022. Opening hours will be from 11.00 - 18.00. Do come and see us as we would love to see you!
