At school I loved art, but the combination of having an uninspiring art teacher and the need for a career with a guaranteed monthly paycheque, I studied to become a radiographer. Over the years I became increasingly unfulfilled with the lack of creativity in my job so I decided to teach myself to paint, and gradually started selling my work in galleries and online, and began doing work for publishing companies. My love of animals , domestic and wild , influenced my artwork, and a few years later, an impromptu ride through a little village about 15 miles from home, found me browsing around a little pottery studio and gallery, and to my delight , they held weekly pottery classes. The owner of the studio, Steve, wasn't a sculptor, so he left me to my own devices and was there if I needed advice on glazes and clays. I gained much of my knowledge from trial and error , and research from the Internet. After a year or so, my work improved in leaps and bounds and was receiving lots of commissions. This is when I decided to take the plunge and set up my own studio, complete with brand new kiln, and I haven't looked back since.
