About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Ceramics and Textile Artist
Location Somerset, United Kingdom
Introduction Hello! I am a ceramicist who has recently meandered into the realms of textiles, lured by satins, silks and taffetas.I have taken on a shop on Town Street,Shepton Mallet and am using it as my studio/workshop. From here I produce figurative sculptures based on religious and classical mythology and wall hangings and cushions inspired by interior design trends. I am open to the public so if you're passing, please drop in... Work currently exhibited at: Latitude50, St.Ives, Air Gallery, Wells, Ginger Fig Gallery, Taunton, Rostra and Rooksmoor Gallery, Bath , Gallery on the Wey, Upwey, Blue Moon Gallery, Tunbridge Wells, Pelham House Gallery, Cowes and The Guild in Somerton.
