About me

My official art education ended in 1987 with a BA Hons in Ceramics from Farnham.  I was then fortunate enough to find work in Sussex making traditional finials and floor tiles.  We worked on many Heritage projects - including the floor tiles for the Crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral.

It was during this time that I explored working with woodblock printing.  I really enjoyed the simplicity of the process; instead of a press, using the back of a wooden spoon and a lot of elbow grease!  Peeling the paper off the block for the first time is always a magic moment as the picture is revealed, a mirror image of the piece of wood I have been carefully chipping away at for days.

A few years ago, I returned to clay after becoming involved in making the tiles for a friend’s new build house from the clay dug from the foundations.  I have since had small, bespoke tiling commissions and run tile making workshops.
