“I love what I do!” Whether it is making a pot, discussing art vs craft with other artists or teaching techniques to people just discovering clay to stretching their abilities. I love it all. My pots reflect my life – ever changing, nothing is static; a life full of colour, fun, pushing the limits and challenging the day-to-day. Clay is a large part of my life and my passion.
