I make sculptural ceramics at my home studio in North London.

Elephants have featured prominently in my ceramics for the last few years, and they have helped me to illustrate my sense of humour, and my general feeling that we humans have got it all a bit wrong! You can read more about them here and watch a film about why I love elephants here.
I’m also inspired by people and other animals, and the hierarchies and bonds that exist amongst us. This has led me to start making ceramic pet portraits to commission. I have always felt like an observer of people, so London is a great place for me to live and work.
I studied Ceramic Design at Central St Martin’s in the early 2000s, after working for Social Research organisations as my original line of work. I have a BSc in Sociology and Applied Social Science from Brunel University and an MA in Applied Social and Market Research from the University of Westminster.
