I enjoy producing work that shows off my personality. I use ceramics as a vehicle to represent a series of story telling.There is a narrative running through my work, which creates an almost whimsical and touching dialogue . I hope to connect with the viewer in order to celebrate the people that have shaped my life. My work takes me on a personal journey through my own memories and family stories based in the north of England .
I have also spent many years working in a spontaneous manner using large brush strokes to make sweeping gestural marks. Translating my watercolour washes onto the ceramic surface.
For me my sketchbooks and the process of mark making is an essential element to my work.
