"I get to play with clay every day which is so much fun"

Originally from Scotland I had the opportunity to move to South Africa in my early 20s which was a move that ended up lasting 40 years. Africa is so exciting and colourful it was amazing to have had the chance to experience it. Whilst there I began painting with oils and was lucky enough to sell internationally through various venues.

Four years ago I moved back to the UK and settled in Exmouth, Devon.  Another lucky move. It is here that I have had the chance to experience pottery and now I get to play with clay every day which is so much fun.

My work is all hand built mainly starting as a slab, eventually maybe…. I will try and master the wheel but for now I love to see what you can turn a flat piece of clay into.
