Bio

After my degree in Ceramics & Photography I worked in Aberdeen on Community Arts Projects in schools and hospitals. I also taught evening classes for 3 years at Grays School of Art and Design. On moving down to Arbroath I have worked with Tayside Healthcare Arts Trust in hospitals and community groups. I have also taught classes at home in Arbroath and these continue regularly, weekly, 4 weekends a year and I do small group (max. 5 people) throwing intensives 2-3 times a year depending on demand. Three months at La Meridiana in Tuscany at “On Centre” helped hone my throwing skills so I feel confident teaching beginners or more experienced potters.
I exhibit my own work in the area with Pop-ups and in Galleries. I also exhibit in Pittenweem during the Arts Festival in August most years.
