I use clay to tell stories, making illustrations of poems, proverbs and my own narratives. Experimenting with combining needle drawn lines etched in to porcelain with layers of under-glaze stains, decals, on-glaze and lustre. The resulting detailed images aim to be both playful and intense.
A large influence on my work were three residencies in China, where I was invited after exhibiting in America. These were in the historic porcelain capital of Jingdezhen, Shanghai and as part of the UK delegation to the FuLe International Ceramic Art Museums.
I exhibit in the UK and internationally, and have work in the permanent collections of two museums in China.
