Artist Statement

I am a Birmingham based sculptor working mainly in ceramic and bronze. My work draws upon ideas and experiences which have evolved during my childhood growing up, and working in the multicultural city of Birmingham.

I am interested in the diversity of culture, tradition, history, identity and belonging present in our lives in the city.  

Living and working in Japan for two years has also brought rich cultural experiences, which are absorbed into my work. Living in Seto, a city famous for its ceramic history, I worked with a potter in his studio, while teaching English in High Schools.

I currently teach Art while studying for my MA in Art and Education Practices at BCU and am developing new techniques and ideas for my studio work.
