My fascination of classical Greek ceramics has led me to explore the relationship between two and three dimensions; form, surface pattern and imagery, and the communication of an idea through the use of narrative.  This balance of three dimensional form and imagery combined with intermittent pattern was mastered by the Greeks and forms the basis of my work. I attempt to combine the classical Greek aesthetic with contemporary narratives highly charged with satirical humour and subversion.
