THE LAYERS WITHIN
Born and educated in the UK, a passionate artist since a child, I initially trained as an Interior Designer. After a successful career, I retrained in ceramics completing 7 years full time study at the Universities of Bristol and Cardiff.
As an artist my main focus is on the creation of figuratively based ceramic sculptures.
My artworks explore the complexities and variants of gender identity, through the expressions of gesture, posture and movement. Symbolic images of protective armour, clothing and the use of multiple layers are often central to many of my artworks.
My artworks are created in both porcelain and stoneware paperclay. The combined use of these materials enable the creation of larger artworks that are constructed using thin layers of clay. I mainly use hand-building and free form sculpting techniques.
I work from my studios in the South West of France. My artworks have been exhibited widely, and they are in collections throughout the UK, USA, Germany and within France. My artworks are currently represented internationally by the renowned Saatchi Gallery and Artprice.com.
