“Inspiration derived from Nature”
Living on the Southern Edge of Dartmoor and 20 mins away from the Coast my inspiration comes from the Moor and the Sea.
My first foray into Pottery was as a teenager and then whilst studying at Art College in Ireland. Having found space in my life to dip back into the Arts I enroled at The Potting Shed, Ashprington & before becoming a Member at Studio 45, Dartington Hall under the expert tuition of Richenda MacGregor and Verran Townsend which proved a turning point.
I currently work from my Garden Studio in Devon.
