My ceramic figures take inspiration from animal and human forms and from the objects around me, often combining elements of these to create some sort of hybrid creature.
Drawing is my main tool for developing these ideas and helps me to focus my imagination which is influenced by fantasy, fairy tales and found objects with rich powers of association.
There is a playful, humorous and whimsical element to the characters which emerge in these sketches prior to making them in clay.
I look for expressions and/or body language and some sort of dialogue which will engage me and the viewer.
