I have been working with clay since being a student at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen in 1976. After a break from making to allow for jobs in a variety of Art Centres, Galleries and finally an Art College (not to mention bringing up my family), I now find myself back with my hands in clay.
I now live most of the time in Chesterfield, Derbyshire and part of my time is spent on The Isle of Arran. This is where most of the inspiration comes from for my work.
The fluid, streamlined shapes of creatures of the sea are a a gift for an artist and I have been drawn to seals and their ever changing postures since walking along the beach on Arran as a child. This is my starting point and one that continues to fascinate me.
