I come from a design background which is the starting point for my exploration into nature, specifically birds.
I love the outdoors, observing natural patterns and form, which developed into watching birds and the way feathers overlap and fold creating interesting shapes and along their backs. This is something I wanted to capture in my artwork, through the tiles I create.
I predominantly create hand rolled ceramic tiles which are finished in glass. I enjoy the process of making and preparing tiles. This is something I have developed over the years into more delicate jewellery based around lace and glass.
