The influence of 1960’s design is clear in my ceramic sculptures based on microscopic images of plants and viruses, curious people and animals. I have exhibited this thought provoking and humorous work throughout the UK. In 2014 I was selected as ceramic artist in residence at Liverpool Hope University after graduating with an MA in Ceramic Art & Design from the University of Central Lancashire. My thesis on pubic art is displayed in both the National Gallery and the National Library of Australia. I am a Director of a community arts centre and gallery in Skelmersdale and am an Advocate for FACT Liverpool.
