I am drawn to the human element, our emotions and interactions, concepts of time and space and how the past, present and future interrelate. Places of transition, whether transition within our own lives, or a place hold a fascination for me.
I am an interdisciplinary artist and I became interested in the transformative processes of ceramics during my degree in contemporary design crafts at University of Hertfordshire. Being new to clay I continued my research of ceramic related materials and processes through an MA at Staffordshire University. During this time I became interested in an arts movement called Anti-form, in which the materials and processes determine the outcome. Seeing outside influences like gravity as a tool opened up alternative ways of working to explore the boundaries, the places where ceramics themselves transition.
My practice is one of research, experimentation and reflection. This process of reflection has allowed me to see the thread throughout my developing practice that links it all to the theme of transition in it's many forms.
