    Biography

    ?My work in ceramics takes many forms depending on the intended placement.I often focus on domestic contexts in which my work ranges from decorative tiles and plates to small figurative sculptures presented as miniature worlds in tableaux form.

    I also create larger sculptural pieces designed for public placement. For instance I have recently been commissioned to create a wall piece using ceramic and mosaic in order to commemorate the Queens Diamond Jubilee at St Martins Church in Dorking.

    I often incorporate references from the past, such as historical figures, artifacts and events, in order to inform my work, thus enabling a conversation between the source material and the contemporary concepts the new body of work explores.

    The opportunity to make new work in historical contexts , either through site-specific pieces or by placing contemporary work within historical settings, is, therefore, very appealing to me and reflective of my approach to ceramics more broadly.
