My long career in graphic design influences the shapes and colours I use in my ceramic sculptures. I studied ceramics a little later in life when I was in my late 20’s as it was always something that fascinated me but wasn’t able to study earlier in my life. I really enjoy building up contrasts of colours and textures using the black clay and bright glazes. I make my animals using simplified shapes whilst building humour into their faces and bodies. When I meet people while selling my creations at fairs and exhibitions, the thing I find most rewarding is the smile my sculptures bring to peoples faces!
