My work is expressive, sculptural, and themed around nature and the Cornish environment. I often incorporate words onto the clay, through the use of printers’ block lettering. Recently, I have made boxes with leaf-resist effect, and also some abstract relief work. More recently, I have been developing Raku glazes with melted glass marbles.

I have an interest in poetry, some of which has been published. I enjoy photography and particularly like to photograph butterflies. I have an interest in church art and how faith can be expressed through art.
