The Jetty Gallery
"I fell in love with clay at seventeen, which since, has defined my life.
The seashore has been an inspiration since childhood where driftwood and ‘found objects’ are my starting point.
From old and discarded items I create something new invoking the theme of decay and renewal, reflecting the on-going cycle of life.
The colour and feel of seaworn pebbles are reflected in the raku or smoked surfaces.
I lose myself in clay or along the tideline of a beach, bringing them together in an art work is my passion.
After graduating in ceramics at Glasgow School of Art I set up a small studio at my home. I exhibit in galleries around Scotland, the RGI and PAI selected annual shows, where I have been awarded several prestigious prizes."
