"Capturing the colour and beauty of our wonderful Norfolk landscape"
“From an early age I was driven to create. Even as a small child I was always colouring, drawing, modelling and painting. My family used to joke that if they left something lying around for long enough, I would paint it!”
“My first serious attempt at art was a life drawing class in Bristol while my children were very young. This inspired me to start an art degree, but part-way through the course I became captivated by sculpture and transferred to study ceramics and 3-D art for three years, where I focused mainly on sculpting the human form. I then spent many years working as a ceramic sculptor, selling my work in galleries in East Anglia and the home counties.”
“In 2007 I took a break from the arts to work full-time as a lecturer at the University of East Anglia, but always continued being creative in my spare time. A few years ago, I took early retirement from UEA, which enabled me to focus more seriously on painting and ceramics once again. I love trying to capture the colour and beauty of our wonderful Norfolk landscape. Having bought a new kiln last year, I am also relishing the chance to experiment with clay in new and different ways. My latest ceramic sculptures focus on trying to capture a human mood or emotion which will engage the viewer by drawing on their own feelings and memories.”
