I am an Artist working in the field of Art and Ecology. I originally trained as a production potter and glassmaker and have spent twenty five years working professionally as a Maker, Teacher and Trainer – facilitating the transformative process of making pots, and the parallel process of supporting people to empower and transform themselves. I am also discovering working with porcelain at the moment and am currently designing a new range.
I also work as a creative facilitator and teacher at Schumacher College.
