I grew up in the Cotswolds, with many acres of common land to play in. Horses and animals were a strong feature of my childhood. I pursued a love of drawing on a degree course at Aberystwyth, and trained and worked as an art teacher. I found the plastic qualities of clay, when I encountered it, liberating and inspiring. After taking a ceramics course in Oxford in 1984, I set up as a maker in Folly Bridge Workshops and spent 5 years learning, making and selling.

I moved to a garden workshop when my children were little and taught ceramics in a wide variety of settings. In 2012 I had the opportunity to return more fully to my own work.

I make horses in stoneware; some with wings, some accompanied by riders.

I am a member of the Oxfordshire Craft Guild.

I welcome commissions.
