I studied ceramics at Camberwell School of Art and Crafts. On leaving college, I ran my own ceramic studio for ten very busy years, selling to high end stores and galleries. A move to Brighton prompted a break with studio production.

In Brighton, I took on an allotment and started exploring the Sussex countryside. I soon started to fill note books with pen drawings of vignettes and details that caught my eye. It wasn't long before I realised that they would make ideal pottery decorations.

During my degree, we had made a week long visit to Stoke-On-Trent, the heart of England's pottery industry. The visit was a complete revelation. I was overwhelmed by the skills employed in making anything from fine china tea cups to huge electrical insulators. The crafts people were so welcoming and unpretentious that the whole experience left a lasting impression.

It has since been a long held wish to decorate Staffordshire bone china. The Rustic designs are my first collection, inspired by my pen drawings. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have designing them. I'm currently working on my second collection on the theme of the Seaside.

Archive coming soon.
