About me...

I am a working potter and painter married to a retired bishop and living near Ross-on-Wye in the Border Country of the Welsh Marches.

I think of myself as a storyteller, whether I’m doing pottery or painting landscapes and portraits.

My workshop is in our garden, a purpose-built shed which I open to the public during annual Open Studios, or by arrangement. My pre-Christmas Charity Shows enable me to donate 100% profits to the homeless, or to local Food Banks – my way of paying something back.

I work with two clays, stoneware and porcelain. It’s important to me to harmonise my work with the countryside, so I source local clays to make my earth coloured glazes. I decorate with wax, leaf resist, sprigs, oxides and sgraffitto. My tiny porcelain pots are decorated with translucent celadon glazes. Commissions are welcome!

I paint in oils, watercolours, acrylics and pastel.

Our local Wye valley countryside has rich textures and colours, especially the local brick and stone of churches, river bridges and dilapidated cottages, and the shifting colours of water.

I approach portraits in a similar manner to landscapes, not only seeking to portray the literal face, but also its mood and character.
