I have lived in Sheffield most of my adult life, in which time I have morphed from computer programmer to artist and now HR officer via childminding and illness, but always gardening. Plants, wildlife (especially birds) and landscape find their way into whatever I think I’m doing.
I have been influenced and inspired originally by my grandfather’s paintings, and more recently by other local artists.
I have been exploring various different media, ceramics, textiles, glass, and 2D work in an effort to find ‘my thing’, whatever that is. It currently seems to be mostly ceramics.
