Creating ceramics has been the foundation of my artistic career but the highly decorative style of brushwork on my pots has naturally led onto paintings.
I have grown to love the immediacy of painting. Decorating ceramics is an extremely exacting technique with the transformation of colour happening out of sight, to be revealed at the end of a firing. This has its own appeal but there is a certain magic to seeing a scene evolve with each layer paint and colour.
My fascination of fabrics and the clutter of daily living infuse all of my paintings and each is an atmospheric vignette of life.
