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 am constantly fascinated how the art from the past continues to inspire artists now, and with this in mind my ideas are allowed to develop through use of a playful dialog between the contemporary and the classical.
