Artist’s statement

I live and work in Stroud, Gloucestershire, where I have been making since 1985.

In May 2008 I was one of five makers in the South West who were awarded a Bursary, aimed at mid-career makers by the Crafts Council, Arts Council England South West, ArtsMatrix, Devon Guild of Craftsmen and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, as part of the Contemporary Craft Fellowship Scheme. For ten months, with the help of mentors, I was able to refresh my creative practice exploring new ideas through drawing and a playful use of materials. This experience has had a significant effect on my practice and approach to it. I am currently spending time developing my ideas that have been generated during that period.
