This is the third year I have hosted DOA at my house. It is a great experience where I can meet people interested in my work and it gives me a deadline to work towards.

I trained in printed textile design and worked in industry including designing bedwear for Dorma before going freelance.

Now I concentrate on pottery and painting.The ceramics have developed since 2001 when I learnt how to use the wheel at Adult Ed. Working in stoneware combining recycled glass in the glaze firing is my main interest and makes each piece unique. The forms in nature inspire the decoration and sometimes the shape of the piece. Work includes bowls, wall plaques and reticulated candle holders.

The landscape around me growing up in Hathersage in the Peak District, and now living in Whaley Bridge, has always been an inspiration to me.

My watercolour landscapes explore the division of space between the sky and the land, the fields and the moorland and the ever changing light and colour.

Working in ceramics and watercolour I enjoy the unpredictability of both mediums which influences the finished artwork.
