Having recently moved my studio from London to Leigh on Sea, I wish to establish my practice as a designer-maker here. I am new to the area and currently working from a shared workshop at Miss Annabel Dee’s gallery.

I have an individual style and my products are generating a good level of interest, including being selected for a high-profile event that Heal’s will launch during the SS17 season. My work has developed over many years studying and making as a studio potter, with attention to detail and a playful use of colours being just two of its defining qualities. My current focus is on using high firing porcelain and stoneware, often with the addition of stains to create vibrant palettes within the body of the pieces.

I would like to be involved in the Leigh Arts Trail to meet local residents as well as those visiting Leigh drawn by the popularity of this event and quality of the work created by its artists.
