I trained at Brighton College of Art, Warwick University and Staffordshire University. I was a lecturer in ceramics at the North East Worcestershire College for many years. Now, I divide my time working in my studio and working for City and Guilds as an External Quality Assurer. I find this role very interesting as it takes me around the country visiting colleges and prisons where Creative 2D and 3D qualifications are delivered. My own practice is inspired by the landscapes of many countries I have visited. All the ceramics are hand built and fired to stoneware temperature of 1270°c. The slips, oxides and glazes are applied in layers with brushes and the result is unpredictable which I find exciting!
