I trained as a teacher specialising in textile arts and taught in primary schools for ten years dividing my time between teaching and ceramics. I gave up teaching and became a full time potter in 1988. I moved into a purpose-built workshop and showroom in 1992.
My early work focused on domestic reduction stoneware, decorated using latex sponge trailing and wax resist.
In 2001 I built a 30 cubic foot salt kiln producing stoneware salt glaze domestic ware and individual pieces .This is now my main production.
Having served in various capacities on the Council of the Craft Potters Association for some fifteen years I am currently involved with the Craft Pottery Charitable Trust.
My main source of inspiration as a potter is my enjoyment of food .
