  • Glasgow 2017

    I saw this graffiti on a trip to Glasgow, its amazing, beautiful and takes your breath away as you stumble across it.

    I have since found out its a modern re-telling of the St. Mungo miracle of 'the bird that never flew'

    by grafitti artist Sam Bates, aka Smug.

    The story goes, “a bird was hit and fell to the ground, while the other boys ran away, Mungo ran towards the fallen bird, picking it up he smoothed and caressed its feathers and prayed over it

    - after a little while it revived and flew away - perhaps it was only stunned

    The villagers called it a miracle and so it was that a small boy should want to help a fallen bird in trouble".

  • 44AD Natural World

    I am happy to be taking part in this collaborative project with other artists we had 48 Hours to respond to the theme NATURAL WORLD, followed by a curator team to organise and select pieces of work to display.

    Each 48 Hours notice exhibition revolves around the making and exhibiting of artworks at a very short notice, and there is no pressure to create a masterpiece; presented artwork may even be a work in progress. The 48 Hours notice project is very much about exploring the process of creativity and the generation of ideas with the aim of initiating a dialogue between the audience, artist/artworks and the space.

    The Natural World is in participation with The Festival of Nature

    Please see the weblink to find out more about the Festival of Nature events -

    www.bnhc.org.uk/festival-of-nature/bath-festival-nature

    48 Hours notice NATURAL WORLD will take place in the Basement gallery at 44AD artspace from: 21 June - 02 July 2017

Expressions I

about me

I am a Ceramic Artist, working from 'In Bristol Studios', an 1830's cotton mill situated in the Barton Hill area of Bristol.
I share 'space 1' with fellow Bath Spa University graduates Jo Corbett and Martha Orr.
My figurative pieces are handbuilt and hand decorated, each one has individual characteristics to suggest a narritive.
I also make small batch production pieces using traditional slip casting techniques they are hand altered and decorated to make each piece unique.
