I am a ceramicist working from my studio in Edinburgh
I started learning to hand build and sculpt with clay at school.
I worked for a summer as a fettler For Jim Keeling at the Whichford pottery
I completed Art A-Level and later undertook the Art and Design Foundation course at Manchester Metropolitan University in 1997-98 specialising in 3D product design.
I bought a small electric kiln and pottery wheel in 2011 and I have been teaching myself to throw since then.
I undertook and advanced throwing course at Wobage with Jeremy Steward in 2015.
I have been fortunate to become part of a team of potters undertaking an annual wood firing in East Linton for the last few years.
