I grew up in the beautiful Scottish Borders where the local industry was textiles. Many of my artistic influences come from all aspects of this industry and from the rich source of folklore and nature.
Working primarily in ceramics, I create my homeware and figurative work in stoneware and more recently have developed a range of work in parian.
All of the ceramic decals are from my own collection. These are sourced from daily walks and also from pressed flowers and scraps which I occasionally find to my delight in some of my favourite old childhood books.
I am so fortunate to work in a lovely studio placed perfectly in my garden overlooking the fields and hills of the Welland valley in Leicestershire.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
