Biography:
Studied at Glasgow University and Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee.
Spent two summers being the apprentice to Lotte Glob, Ceramic Artist in Durness, Scotland.

Since then time in Mexico and Spain has influenced my work.  Now the wild sea and sky of Fife is my backdrop. I Have been working with clay for about twenty years.
Vessels and figures are sculpted in clay. I then make sketches of the landscape in colour, abstract them and use this information for my glazing.  
I use coloured slips, melted glass, circular markings, and sometimes ceramic photos.
Inspirations and aspirations are from eclectic influences ranging from the solid stability of the Fife landscape, the fluid spirituality of Celtic/Greek Goddesses and reflections upon the chaotic contradictions the new president of the USA brings to our world.

I am presently exhibiting in The Sutton Gallery, Edinburgh and in Art Village, Glasgow and will be showing in The Pittenweem Arts Festival this summer.
