Like many people, I’m inspired by the natural world in general, but I feel an extra special connection to animals, fungi and the humble wild flowers of hedgerows and meadows.
I studied Natural History Illustration at Bournemouth and Poole Art College but my never-ending urge to replicate the real thing led me towards working with clay. It wasn’t until I started to design and make cakes that I was introduced to Cold Porcelain, an air drying clay which when dry becomes hard and transparent. Having sculpted with cold porcelain for about 12 years, I feel that it’s the ideal medium for me to use to be able to recreate nature’s offerings.
My newest venture is sculpting symbolic animals and creatures onto driftwood found and collected from the South Coast of England to create 'Talking Sticks' and 'Memory Sticks', where I can replicate an image of a pet onto said driftwood.
